ST. LOUIS • Three people were shot at the Midtown Sports Bar and Grill at 1923 East Prairie Avenue on Friday night, police said, as someone in a car drove past and fired into the bar.

A man was shot in the chest and a woman was shot in the leg, both inside the bar. Another man, who was shot in the neck, drove himself to a hospital. It wasn't known if he was in the bar when he was hit. Police said none of the victims had life-threatening injuries.

The door to the bar was open at the time of the shooting, bar patrons said.

The bar has been celebrating its first anniversary of operation.

One of the patrons, Missy Love, said she was playing darts when the shooting began.

"I heard that second shot, and I jumped on the floor," she said. "It was scary."
