Denver police are asking for the public’s help identifying a woman who shot five people outside of Dierks Bentley’s bar in Denver.

According to KDVR, the shooting took place last weekend at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in Lower Downtown after the woman was denied entry into the bar because security suspected she was using somebody else’s ID.

After getting out of line to speak to security, the woman then shot at the bar as she was walking away. Police believe she may have been aiming at bar security, but hit five bystanders outside of the bar instead.

Video from the chaotic scene shows patrons rushing for cover inside the bar as the shots rang out:

According to Armando Saldate, the executive director of Denver Public Safety:

“There seemed to be some sort of confrontation or a fight over that verbal altercation, at which she produced a handgun that was concealed on her person and started shooting.”

The victims were transported to the hospital, and all are expected to survive.

Denver Police have not yet identified the suspected shooter, and are offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the woman’s arrest.

Whiskey Row released a statement on the incident following the shooting:

 “We are very concerned about the ongoing criminal activity in LoDo and have been engaged with city officials and neighborhood leaders on how to make positive improvements in the area.”
