Police officers say they saw a large group of people running out of the bar around 1 a.m. on New Year’s Day. A witness told police about a shooting inside the building.

Emergency crews identified the two shot as a man and a woman. APD says both victims were adults but in their late-teens.

Police confirmed the woman was an innocent bystander who was caught in the gunfire. They could not say whether the male victim was associated with the suspect or not.

APD says the two victims were taken to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The owner of Terminal 6, Saveou Nasareddin, said the club is closed permanently.
