Duluth Police are investigating after shots were fired outside the Twins Bar on Fifth Avenue East and Fourth Street in Duluth.

Police said they responded to a report of a fight outside the Twins Bar just after 1:30 a.m. on Sunday.

Initial investigation revealed that a 73-year-old security guard employed by the bar approached and saw other people standing near the two fighting. He said he saw one man standing on the sidewalk with a gun in his hand. The guard shouted at the suspect to put the gun down, and the suspect pointed it at him, according to police. Police said the guard then fired one round.

The suspect ran north on Fifth Avenue East before turning to point the gun at the guard again, according to police. They said the guard fired a second round, and the suspect ran away.

The guard was not sure if the suspect was hit, and no evidence was found at the scene to indicate that he had been shot.

The incident is being investigated, and anyone with information is asked to call 911.
