Three people were shot outside a South Main Street bar in Akron around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

According to Akron police, two men and a woman were shot near the entrance of Deja Vu — a nightclub and hookah bar along South Main Street just south of West Crosier Street.

Police said the woman was shot in the back and suffered the worst injury but all three were expected to survive.

Police spent about an hour identifying dozens of witnesses and people that were at the club in the parking lot next door before letting most go home.

Police did have a few people detained in the back of police cars but it was unknown if they were witnesses or suspects.

Shell casings littered the street outside the bar and the parking lot to the north along South Main Street.

No information about suspects was released but police said they believe the shooting was captured on surveillance cameras.
