Shooting at Akron bar sends 1 person to hospital

AKRON, Ohio — A man was seriously wounded early Thursday morning in a shooting at a bar in the Merriman Valley neighborhood.

Police say officers working an off-duty job heard a shot near the area of Mickey’s in the Valley, 1310 Weathervane Lane, at about 1:30 a.m. They saw several people running from the bar.

When other officers responded, the staff at the bar denied there was a shooting, according to police. However, a 30-year-old man was found with a wound to the stomach.

Police say the victim was taken to Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital.

The staff at the bar refused to cooperate with investigators, police say. No arrests were made and there is no description of a suspect.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact investigators.
