SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Two people died and three others were injured when gunshots were fired inside a Sarasota bar.

The shooting happened early Sunday at Kay’s Lounge in North Sarasota.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune (https://bit.ly/13Ugn7K ) reports more than 100 people were inside the bar when the shooting occurred. But Sarasota County Sheriff’s officials say no one who may have witnessed the shooting has come forward with information.

Deputies say 24-year-old Todd Thompson and 26-year-old Vincent DiPina were killed. Two other victims were taken to a Sarasota hospital and a woman was injured by broken glass as she tried to help the injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office.
