KOKOMO, Ind. - Police in Kokomo are investigating an early morning shooting outside a Kokomo bar that left four men shot, one of them in critical condition.
Thirty-one-year-old Cristobal Guerroro of Marion was in critical condition Sunday at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne after being brought there by helicopter, and another man was in stable condition. Two others were brought to Community Howard Regional Hospital following the shooting outside the Ultimate Place 2B nightclub about 3:17 a.m. Sunday.
Police Sgt. Brian Seldon said officers responded to reports of gunshots being fired and when they arrived they saw people running from the business. Police were looking for one suspect who remains at large.
After the shooting, some city leaders were calling for action and accusing the business owner of breaking the law.
Kokomo Common Council Member Cynthia Sanders said the owner of The Ultimate Place 2B has had repeat business violations, which support an environment of lawlessness.
"There were charges on racketeering, and Danny Dumoulin II, he was charged with prostitution, employees that were smoking marijuana," Sanders said.
Dumoulins is the owner of The Ultimate Place 2B, Big Daddy's and Little Daddy's. Since 2013, Indiana State Excise Police have cited all three businesses. Dumoulins is currently facing charges related to prostitution.
"This guy that owns this place, he owns a few adult entertainment places in town, and it seems like he always has trouble at all of them," said Kokomo resident Ronda Doudley.
Police have not released a possible motive for the shootings, or whether the victims were inside the club.
