One man was found injured in the parking lot of a southwest Cedar Rapids bar early Sunday morning after police heard gunfire nearby, authorities said.
Officials believed to have heard the gunfire in the Czech Village area around 12:48 a.m. A short time later, officers located a “shooting victim” in the parking lot of CJ’s Bar, 62 17th Avenue SW.
The male victim was transported to Mercy Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries, authorities said.
Officials are looking for two black males that were last seen running westbound from the scene. One was seen in a dark coat, the other in a white coat. No arrests have been made at this time.
The incident remains under investigation.
