PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A wanted suspect fired shots inside a southeast Portland bar during an early morning robbery, narrowly missing at least two people.  

Police were called out to Red's Bar & Grill on the 7000 block of Southeast Foster Road at 2:26 a.m.

Employees told officers a man armed with a gun entered the bar just before closing time and demanded money.

When one person ran away toward the kitchen, police said the suspect fired multiple shots. The shots narrowly missed the person running, as well as a customer seated in the bar, according to witnesses.

An employee gave cash to the robber, who was last seen running eastbound on Foster Road.

Officers and a K-9 checked the neighborhood, but did not locate the suspect. He is described as a white man, 5'9" and wearing all dark clothing.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact robbery detectives at 503-823-0405.
