Gun pulled in Maplewood bar

Police need help identifying suspect

Maplewood police are trying to identify a male suspect who pulled out a gun at Bleecher's Bar on the evening of Friday, July 24, and pointed it at patrons as he exited the establishment.

A little before 11 p.m., Maplewood police officers were called to the bar at 2220 White Bear Ave. N., on the report of an armed assault.

According to police, witnesses reported that the suspect was fighting with another man inside the bar. The suspect pulled out a small silver gun and pointed it at the man he was arguing with.

Those threatened with the gun backed away, but the suspect continued pointing the gun at patrons as he backed his way out of the bar.

Maplewood police request that anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of the suspect contact the Maplewood Police Department at 651-249-2600 or call 9-1-1.

To place an anonymous tip, text the keyword "Maplewood," followed by the tip information to Tip411 (847411).
