No one was seriously injured when a shot was fired in a downtown Reykjavík bar yesterday evening. The Reykjavík Capital Area Police Department is still looking for the shooter.

Police received a report around 7:00 PM last night that a man had entered Dubliners Irish pub in downtown Reykjavík and fired a shot inside the establishment. The shot hit a wall by the bar and the man fled the scene immediately. The police dispatched a large team to the scene, including special forces and paramedics.

Though no serious injuries were sustained, two individuals received medical assistance: one for a graze on their head and another who was concerned about their hearing. Police found a weapon near the scene shortly afterwards.

Police encourage the shooter to turn himself in.
