Five people were wounded outside a bar in Detroit after a disagreement over a parking spot, police said. 

The Detroit Police Department Assistant Police Chief Charles Fitzgerald said during a press conference that the fight broke out at about 2:45 a.m. on Friday at Chicago Blu’z Bar & Grill.

“Senseless, ridiculous,” Fitzgerald said. “Five people to be shot over a parking spot is just silly to me.”

Police said that the fight over the parking spot quickly turned violent after one man pulled out a firearm and began firing into a crowd.

Fitzgerald said that they are investigating why the bar was open at 2:45 a.m., noting that it should have been closed.

“Obviously, this blues club should not have been open at 2:45 a.m. where they’re still arguing for a parking spot,” Fitzgerald said.
