ROCK ISLAND, Illinois - A bar in Rock Island was subject to gunshots early Sunday morning.

The police entered the scene to find three people injured and the suspect nowhere to be seen. Police say that the bar was packed and it was a miracle that only three people sustained injuries.

A 20-year old Silvis woman with one gunshot wound and a 21-year old Davenport man with three gunshot wounds were transported to a hospital. The wounds are serious, but not considered life-threatening. Additionally, a 24 year-old Moline woman was treated for a laceration on her hand.

The suspect is still at large. Rock Island police have a description of the subject, but are not releasing it until they gather more information.
