Hola . I know that most don't like to hear this , but it must be told
Was having a quiet night at the bar when gun shots erupted from the bar across the road. It was about 10:30. A lady came in with a gunshot wound to her thigh. We were ushered inside and the doors were closed. Several more shots outside. My wife attended to the ladies wound. Apparently 3 other people were shot. Counted about 7 shots. Don't know if anyone was killed.
PS. We were near the Fishing Hole bar in Centro

There are no words to express how much my wife and I regret that you and others had to witness this vile and cowardly attack in our downtown streets. Story of a violent tragedy foretold.

The response of the police wasn't very swift, and the response of the ambulances was frankly pathetic. Never heard a siren. Taxis kept driving practically on top of the body in the street that I could see instead of turning around and not disturbing the crime scene. It's a sick tragi-comedy that seems to have no end as long as city authorities continue ignoring the reclamos of the citizens, residents and business owners in el Centro who have been complaining about this particular bar as well as the entire bar problem for well over 10 years now. We are anxious to see what the reaction of the government will be. Hopefully not just the temporary closing of this bar but a more comprehensive and far-reaching set of measures in line with the desires of downtown residents and business owners.

My respect to your wife for getting involved (most people simply ran away) and for helping one of the victims who was not mentioned in any of the news accounts I've seen so far. I urge your wife not to mention the young lady's name to anyone. Her life could still be at risk.
