Three people sustained minor injuries when police said someone fired a BB gun at the establishment Friday night, breaking a bar window and fleeing the scene.

Colorado Springs police said investigators had identifed the shooter, but did not release the man's name because the investigation was ongoing.

The shooting at the Thirsty Parrot Bar, 32 S. Tejon St. happened shortly after 10 p.m., when a black pickup truck with gray stripes and a removed bed drove by and someone inside the vehicle fired a BB gun several times.

The shots struck a bouncer and two patrons standing outside, causing minor injuries, police said.

The damage to the bar was estimated at $1,500. The motive was not clear.

Anyone with information can call police at 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-7867.
