    PORTLAND – Owners of a SE Portland strip club said a man who shot and wounded three people there Saturday night was denied entry because of belligerent behavior and racist comments. He returned half an hour later armed with a gun and wearing a scary Halloween mask.

    The shooting happened just before 9 p.m. Saturday, when the gunman walked into the Mystic Gentleman’s Club at Southeast Stark Street and Southeast 99th Avenue and opened fire, said Sgt. Pete Simpson with Portland police.
    The shooter hit three people, prompting a person in the bar to return fire, hitting and critically injuring the suspect.

    "The shooter came in and just started shooting without any kind of warning," victim Gonzalo Zamora-Hernandeza told KGW Monday.

    The armed patron ( or employee?) saved at least a few more people from being shot I think.

    Was it a customer or was it an employee?

    These two statements in the article tends to hide rather than disclose the relationship to the establishment.

    "The shooter hit three people, prompting a person in the bar to return fire, hitting and critically injuring the suspect."

    "The person who returned fire and hit the suspect was not arrested and was cooperating with police. "
