One victim in critical condition as police search for suspects.

Denver police are still searching for suspects in a shooting spree early Saturday morning outside a club show by Bay Area rapper [artist id="6431"]E-40[/artist] that left five people injured. One of the victims was still listed in critical condition on Sunday.

According to 9 News in Denver, the shootings occurred outside Club Vinyl in the downtown area just before 2 a.m. Approximately 100 people were standing outside the venue when shots rang out. Witnesses reported that the gunmen ran away after shooting into the crowd.

The incident occurred as the club was closing and concertgoers were leaving, with bullets flying "everywhere," according to a security guard at a nearby hotel, which was also hit with gunfire, according to the Denver Post. One witness told KWGN News that he saw 50 or 60 patrons "running for their lives," and while police wouldn't say what triggered the incident, the eyewitness said he saw three men with guns and a knife chasing and firing at three other men.

Another witness, who works at the hotel that was hit by bullets, told the Rocky Mountain News that police are at Club Vinyl three to five times a week and that fights are common at the nightspot.

Police said they believe some of the victims were leaving the club at the time of the shootings, but it was unclear if all five had attended the concert.

As of Sunday, no arrests had been made in the shootings, and a spokesperson for the Denver Police Department could not be reached for comment on Monday (December 29) morning for additional details.
