DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Chaos, early Sunday morning as police respond to shots fired in downtown Dubuque.

According to the police scanner, more shots were fired as police arrived on scene around 19th and White Streets.

They say it all started at Club Randavoo, which just opened two days ago.

A nearby witness, who wants to remain anonymous heard it all. "It was about one o'clock and I heard four pops -- like pop, pop, pop, pop!" he said.

At some point, one of the bar's window was broken when a woman threw a bar stool to get out. She suffered a cut to her leg. 

While working the scene, they find 22-year-old Shadeed Monroe with a gun. He's arrested for Reckless Use of a Firearm.

Neighbors say it's crazy, this new bar is already bringing so many problems. "They opened it up, and there's already been a shooting. Oh my God, it's incredible."

The owner of Club Randavoo, Dave Lorenz is adamant no shots were fired inside, but he admits seeing a man run, then run back out with a gun. 

Police say the investigation is ongoing and they're trying to figure out if shots were fired inside the bar.
