Any incident of this nature in the downtown or in any of our neighborhoods is unacceptable and will not be tolerated," Mayor Williams said.

The shooting happened just before 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at Kulture Hookah Bar in the 1100 block of 4th Avenue. Police say the victims were both inside and outside the bar.
The seven victims were taken to the hospital either via personal vehicles or EMS. No fatalities have been reported, but the conditions of the victims has not been released.

A city spokesman released the following statement later Wednesday afternoon:
"The Police Department is continuing its investigation into the shooting at Kulture. This investigation includes all licenses and permits. Various facets of the investigation are continuing to evolve and when we have updated information, we will advise the media of these findings."
