The search continues for the person who shot and injured two people at Kurt and Clyde’s bar early Sunday morning.

This is just the latest in a string of shootings we've been able to trace to that same establishment.

There have been four shootings where someone has been injured in the past year, with two of them being in recent weeks, on March 11th and on Sunday.

Debra Hagberg spoke with Channel Six news. Her daughter, Corinna was one of the victim’s in Sunday’s shooting.

“There's so much pain and it changes lives. My daughter will never walk the same,” says Hagberg.

Police say there was a fight that began outside the bar and that's when someone took out a gun and shot it into the crowd. Corinna, a bystander, was shot in the knee.

Corinna and one other person were taken to Creighton Medical Center.

Jeremy Vieyra also spoke to Channel Six News. He was shot outside the bar two weeks ago.

“I think God was looking after me. I’m surprised to be here and surprised it didn't go thru me.”

Jeremy was trying to help his cousin who was being robbed outside of Kurt and Clyde's when he was grazed by a bullet hitting his wrist and ankle.

“There are a lot of shootings down there all the time. There’s too much trouble in the area”.

He stays away from the bar and Debra Hagberg says her daughter will too, but she wants more to be done.

“I think if you're a business and you've had several incidences in the past year, you have some responsibility to your patrons for some security.”

The liquor license for Kurt and Clyde’s may be in jeopardy. The State Liquor Control Commission says they are already investigating two complaints at the bar and expect to receive a third from Omaha police about the shooting from Sunday.

Officials say they expect a hearing sometime in April or May and the bar’s license could be suspended or revoked at that time.

If you do have concerns about the bar you can call the City Planning Department at 402-444-5150.
