24-year old Soloman Harris is behind bars after a night out turned violent early Sunday morning.
Harris was taken into custody at the scene of a shooting just after 1am inside Mac Behrs on Historic Fourth Street.
A female victim was sent to Mercy Medical Center after taking a bullet to the chest. No word on the identity or condition of that victim.
Harris, on the other hand, is being charged with 4 Class C felonies including Willful Injury and Reckless Use of a Firearm.
Tragic shootings like this have a widespread affect on the entire area.
Tiffany Nettleton, the owner of Buffalo Alice's, a bar nearby said, "I think it affects everyone's business down here or people's perception of what goes on. If they want to go out, people might rethink again, or rethink on what their destination in town is going to be."
It's a year, nearly to the day, of a different shooting outside Mac Behrs and just over 2 years since a fight turned fatal just across the street.
So, why does this keep happening here?
"I don't know. I don't have an answer to that. And I'm sure they don't, or things would be changed. I'm sure maybe, they'll do a little different enforcing or something," said Nettleton.
Mac Behrs representatives were advised not to speak to the media at this time, but they did post a message on their Facebook page.
It reads: "Our thoughts and prayers go towards the victim and the family of the victim from [Sunday morning] who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is unfortunate what happened last night at MacBehrs but, we are trying all we can to keep a safe environment for all of our patrons. We as a business are not to blame for this. It was the persons choice to think he had to carry a gun into a bar which we don't approve. Alcohol and any weapons don't mix at anytime. We ask that you have faith in us and continue to support us locally owned bar."
And many of our viewers have been sharing your thoughts on our Facebook page as well.
Angie says, "Its all about prevention. If it has happened twice now maybe its time to step it up so its not an every weekend kind of thing."
Damien says, "It could have happened anywhere. It just happened at Mac's."
But Jason says, "How many times has something like this happened down at Macs? I hold them partially to blame."
