MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. —
Police said a man opened fire inside of a McKees Rocks bar early Friday morning, injuring one person and sending several others running for cover.
According to police, the shooting happened at Bob’s Tavern on Broadway Avenue around 1:30 a.m.
Authorities said one person was shot in the chest. He was transported to a local hospital where he's listed in critical condition.
Officials said the man, whose name hasn’t been released, is expected to survive.
Christopher Pollard, 22, is expected to be charged with the shooting. Investigators said they believe the shooting happened after an argument over money.
Pollard remains in the Allegheny County Jail awaiting arraignment.
Channel 11’s Renee Kaminski reported that several law enforcement agencies, including the district attorney, are looking into whether they should try closing Bob’s Tavern.
“It’s a lot different than it was a couple of years ago,” former customer Martin Dzubinski said.
Dzubinski told Kaminski he hasn’t been inside Bob’s Tavern for 10 months -- when he was beaten, robbed and left for death by another customer at the bar.
“It seems to be (bad for the town),” Dzubinski said. “I would like to see it shut down.”
Bob Wilson, the owner of Bob’s Tavern, declined to comment.
