RACINE -- Three people were shot outside a Racine bar early Sunday morning.

According to a bar employee the victims were arguing outside of Sleepy's Tropical Paradise on Douglas Avenue around 2 a.m. 

“There’s been like three shootings there already this year,” said a neighbor who didn’t want to be identified. “I just wish it would get closed down because I just want to move. It makes me scared to raise a kid over here.”

Back on March 23, A 32-year-old man was shot by police after authorities said he fired his own gun into the air and wouldn't drop the weapon.

He received a non-life threatening injury and was taken into custody after being treated at a nearby hospital.

Racine police have not released any information about Sunday’s early morning shooting. The bar employee said the victims were taken to a nearby hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
