CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - Five people were injured early Sunday in a shooting inside a southwestern Missouri banquet hall, Cape Girardeau police said.

The shooting happened around 1 a.m. Sunday at The River in Cape Girardeau, television station KFVS reported. Police were initially called to the hall for reports of a large, unruly crowd. Arriving officers then heard gunshots from inside the hall and rushed inside to find five injured people and that the shooter had fled, police said.

Police Sgt. Joey Hann said four of the injured suffered injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Hanns said a fifth person was in serious condition with gunshot wounds to the abdomen. No arrests have been made, and police have no suspects, Hann said. Although several people witnessed the shooting, they have refused to cooperate with police, he said.
