Local authorities said the shooting happened after a dispute between two people inside La Familia Sports Pub and Lounge just before 2 a.m. on Sunday. The individuals involved in the dispute left the bar, got into separate vehicles, and began shooting into the crowd in the parking lot as they fled, according to the Des Moines Police Department.
One victim from the bar appeared to have gone to the Red Lion Inn & Suites north of the bar, according to a person staying at the Red Lion who said he saw blood and medical supplies in the lobby of the inn.
