Southfield police are investigating a shooting at a sports bar early Saturday in which three men were shot but are expected to survive.

A call reporting a shooting to police came at 12:46 a.m. from Bar 7 at 24528 W. Twelve Mile, said Lt. Ted Goff.

Officers found a 53-year old Southfield man with a gunshot wound to the thigh. The Southfield Fire Department responded to the scene and took the victim to Providence Hospital.

While investigating at the scene, officers learned two additional victims had been driven to Providence Hospital in a private vehicle, Goff said.

At the hospital, officers located a 28-year old Detroit man with a gunshot wound to the thigh and a 25-year old Southfield man with a possible gunshot wound to his arm.

None of the injuries are considered life-threatening, police said.

One the victims was involved in fight with one of the suspects. Punches were thrown and the two suspects then pulled out their guns and began shooting, police said.

The two suspects fled the scene.

The first suspect is described as having shoulder-length dreadlocks. He was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt. He fled the scene in an older, dark-colored sedan, possibly a 1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu.

The second suspect was black male wearing a dark jacket and blue jeans. He fled the scene in an unidentified vehicle.

Bar manager Devon Esshaki said on Saturday that Bar 7 has been cooperating with police in their investigation and he hopes the suspects are located soon and the victims have a speedy recovery.

“The police pulled all the videos and got a still image of one of the suspects. We are open for business and there are three victims in the hospital now. We are just hoping a speedy safe recovery for them,” Esshaki said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Southfield Police Department at (248) 796-5500.
