CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Police have arrested one person in connection to Thursday morning's bar shooting that left six people injured. CPD are currently searching for a second suspect.

Police say shots first pierced the night air at Bottoms Up on Superior & Addison around 1:30AM Thursday after a 19-year-old girl was denied entry into the establishment.

Multiple sources have confirmed the upset girl went home got her brother and two others and sought revenge on those at Bottoms Up.

Four people - including one of the gunmen - struck in what witnesses describe as a shoot-out between people inside the car and a group gathered in front of the watering hole. As many as 15 to 20 shots may have been fired.

The gunmen in the car then fled and went on a shooting rampage.

They riddled a home with bullets on E. 71st Street. Luckily, no one was injured in that random act of violence.

They also went by a home at E. 74th & Myron Street and shot at a group of teens sitting on the porch. 18-year-old John Williams was shot in the leg. He's expected to recover.

Two people - including the injured 50-year-old suspect and 19-year-old girl believed to be the driver of the car - have been arrested. Police are still searching for the girl's brother and other person in the car at this time.

Police tell 19 Action News the girl's brother is a known trouble maker and believe he is responsible for multiple shootings in the neighborhood.

Everyone injured in the early morning shooting is expected to survive their injuries.
