SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Authorities are investigating a triple shooting that happened in the Carondelet neighborhood of south St. Louis Saturday night.

The shooting happened around 8 pm at Red's Eighth Inning Bar, which is near the intersection of Michigan and Holly Hills Ave.

Police said the bar was full with around 20 people inside when a masked suspect entered and announced a robbery.

The owner, who was bartending at the time, took out a gun from behind the bar, and said she and the suspect started exchanging shots.

Police said the suspects then went outside while still shooting.

The owner of the bar was shot in the arm, a 30-year-old female customer was shot in the ankle and a 65-year-old male customer was shot in the head. All three were taken to a hospital. The owner of the bar and the male customer were listed in critical condition. The 30-year-old female customer was listed as stable, police said.

Witnesses said there was a second suspect in the bar's foyer. Both suspects ran from the area following the shooting.

St. Louis Fire Dept. Capt. Ken Mitchell said the bar is frequented by city firefighters, adding they plan to show support for the owner by packing the bar when it re-opens.

Police are currently looking at surveillance footage to see if they can gather any more information on the suspects.
