Two men are dead and several others injured after a shootout early Saturday morning.

Police tell FOX23 it happened around 3 a.m at the Dragon's Lair on 11th Street between Yale and Sheridan.

Managers tell police it was rented out for a personal birthday party Saturday morning when a deadly fight broke out.

Nelson Alvarado's store, C&J Auto, sits next to the Dragon's Lair bar, so working on cars has been the farthest from his mind today. 

"I’ve been thinking all day about it. It's just a different day, feels completely different from a normal day,” he told FOX23.

Police tell FOX23 there were around 50 people inside when some started fighting.

The fight spilled into the parking lot, and then the shooting began.

Shots hit three of Alvarado’s cars.

"The shot got through the overhead door and hit the car,” Alvarado said.

The cars are now evidence for homicide detectives working the case.

FOX23 learned three men were shot. Two of them, including 20-year-old Marrico McGuire, died.

Police said the shots were fired from both in the parking lot and across the street.

They also said there was a fourth victim, a 21-year-old woman, but she wasn't shot.

She was inside the bar at the time of the shooting, but police said at one point, she tried to run out and across 11th Street and was hit by a car.

A car we later learned was fleeing the scene.

Alvarado is still in disbelief.

"I feel a little bit nervous because we have to work up here all the time,” he said.
 
He’s also worried the violence could take a toll on his business, deterring customers.

Especially since three of his cars were in the crossfire.

"I have to tell the customers about it, and I really don't know how to tell them," he said.

Detectives had the entire area blocked off until noon Saturday.

The homicide sergeant told FOX23 witness stories still aren’t lining up.

Detectives have asked that anyone who knows about the killing come forward.

You can call the homicide tip line (918)798-8477.

This is the 52nd and 53rd homicides of the year.

Well it's not like they rent the bar out every day.
