EAST CAPE GIRARDEAU, IL (KFVS) - A bouncer was shot in the arm early Sunday morning at The Pony in East Cape Girardeau.

Alexander County Sheriff Tim Brown says the sheriff's office got a call around 3:45 a.m. for a fight and shooting at The Pony in East Cape Girardeau. 

"It was very unnerving," Vicki Kissiar said. "I was scared for not only myself but for my neighbors, my niece and my nephew. I woke the children up and we went and hid on the back on the floor."

Brown says they found shell casings from three different guns.

He believes the bouncer was accidentally shot in the arm.

"It was very scary," Pat Ruffin. "I didn't know if one would come towards my house or not."

Brown says this shooting may be related to some of the recent shootings in Cape Girardeau.

No one is in custody. Police have no suspects at this time. 

East Cape Girardeau Police Chief William Gibson says he was not notified of the incident and that the Alexander County Sheriff's Department is handling the situation.
