Insane Ohio Gun Fight Caught on Tape, Now Cops Are Looking for the Cook


TOLEDO, Ohio (CBS/AP) Police in Ohio say they are getting closer to identifying the suspects in a wild Oct. 8 shootout that sent patrons scrambling for cover as at least five gunmen sprayed bullets into the crowded bar. And one of the men they are looking for is the cook.

Amazingly, much of the movie-like drama was caught by security cameras of Route 66 Kitchen. The best of it starts about one minute into the tape.

Deputy Chief Don Kenney says one of the suspects is a cook who works at the bar. He says investigators have a good idea about the names of some of the others.

Toledo police say video of the shootout has generated tips revealing the street names used by several of the gunmen. Amazingly, no injuries were reported.

No one has been arrested yet in the shootout that involved at least five gunmen at the bar near the University of Toledo campus.

Footage from a three-minute video surveillance system shows gunmen firing shots from inside and outside of the bar while customers dashed out the doors.

The fight apparently began when a bar employee asked a man who was trying to sell marijuana to leave, Kenney told the Toledo Blade.
