Shooting at the Five Point Bar injures employees, police said


Police said a bar employee was injured in a shooting at a bar in 5 Pointz, Colombia, early Saturday morning.

According to Colombian police, Colombian Jonathan Alexander Amal Wise, 21, was arrested and charged with attempted murder and possession of weapons during a violent crime. According to county records, Wise has been detained at the Alvin S. Glen Detention Center, denying his bond.

According to police spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons, the incident took place Saturday at about 12:30 am at Jake’s bar in Block 2100 on Divine Street. Wise was out of control at the bar and was asked to leave, she said. According to Timmons, he fired a shot that hit the lower body bar manager when he was asked to leave. Injuries were not considered life-threatening, according to a police spokesman.

Wise reportedly ran and was arrested about two blocks away.

The manager was Jeffrey Sears, a longtime employee and brother of the bar owner John Sears, according to sources with research knowledge. FITS News first reported on Saturday morning that Sears was the victim of the incident.

Jakes lawyer and spokesman Joe McCulloch reviewed the incident video on Saturday and was only in the bar for five or ten minutes before Wise got out of hand and was asked to leave the bouncer. Said that. He said the suspect had fired after a while. The manager, who was lying down observing the situation, was hit with a bullet.

According to McCulloch, the victim was still hospitalized as of Saturday afternoon.

Lawyers said Jakes had a reputation as a safe facility and the shootings there were unusual.

“This is equivalent to a 9mm lightning strike,” McCulloch said. “It could have happened somewhere in the city, in front of the Legislature, or somewhere else. It has nothing to do with Five Point, it has nothing to do with establishment, but it has nothing to do with it. It has something to do with the availability of guns … and devaluation of life. “
