NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Nashville Police say three people were shot outside a downtown bar.

The Tennessean reports the man believed to be the shooter was asked to leave the establishment about 15 minutes before opening fire

Police were called to WKND Lounge on Church Street after multiple shots were fired near the bar's entrance after 10:30 p.m.

A security guard for a valet service was shot in the mouth and rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in critical condition. He was in stable condition Saturday.

Two other victims, a man and a woman, suffered non-critical injuries.

Police say the suspect had very long braided hair and was seen on a surveillance camera wearing a blue shirt, dark pants and carrying a white umbrella.
