Shots rang out early this morning at the popular Charlotte bar, ‘Smokey Joe’s Cafe’. This is not the first time this has happened as another shooting occurred there not to long ago. Apparently a fight took place right around closing time at 2am. The fight ended with a gun fight and left one man with life-threatening injuries. I myself have been to this bar to listen to music and have a fun “dive bar” kind of night. I have never seen any situation to this extent.
A woman in the bar at the time had just gone to the bathroom and she said: “I went to use the bathroom and I heard shot ‘pop, pop’ and I crawled on the floor,” Terrie Faulkner said. “I heard another shot, so I crawled on the floor to the storage behind Smokey Joe’s counter.”
Police are still looking for the shooter.
