    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Two people are shot outside a bar in downtown Nashville overnight.

    Two men are kicked out of Piranha's Bar on 3rd Avenue North early Saturday morning after becoming involved in an altercation with staff, according to Metro Nashville police. The men returned armed with and confronted staff outside as they were prepared to leave.

    One of the suspects, 30-year-old Stephen Hughes, dropped his gun after being punched in the face by a staff member, according to police. He picked up the gun and fired, hitting one man in the foot and another person in the leg several times.

    The other suspect, 21-year-old Zachary Anderson, reportedly fired his gun into the air. Two women also reported to police that he approached their vehicle and pointed a gun at them.

    Police found Anderson at the Hermitage Cafe and arrested him. He allegedly had a stolen gun in his possession.

    Anderson is in jail facing two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, reckless endangerment with a firearm, gun possession while intoxicated, misdemeanor assault, and theft. He is being held on a $45,000 bond.

    Hughes has not been captured at this time. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
