St. Cloud Police have identified the victim of Saturday morning's shooting outside of the Press Bar and Parlor in downtown St. Cloud.
According to the St. Cloud Police Department's Sergeant Jason Burke, the victim is 31-year-old James Alan Gackstetter of St. Cloud. His current condition has not been released.
Authorities say the victim of a shooting that happened just after 12:30 a.m. Saturday outside the Press Bar and Parlor in downtown St. Cloud is an employee of the bar.
St. Cloud police say the suspect identified himself as 24-year-old Courtney Terell Holmes from Mississippi. Investigators think the suspect is giving police false information to hide his identity and are working with outstate law enforcement agencies to find out his true identity.
Sergeant Jason Burke of the St. Cloud police says the victim asked two underage women to leave the bar, when he saw one of the women leaving with the alleged suspect.
The Press Bar and Saloon employee followed the two outside where a verbal confrontation took place. The suspect and the underage woman both spit on the victim before the suspect allegedly fired multiple shots, wounding the 31-year-old bar employee.
The victim was taken to the St. Cloud Hospital emergency room with non-life threatening injuries.
