One of the suspects in a bar shootout is a cook who works there and investigators have a good idea about the names of other shooters, police here say.

Video of the shootout has generated tips revealing the street names used by several of the gunmen. No one has been arrested yet.

At least five gunmen opened fire at the bar near the University of Toledo campus last Thursday night while customers dashed outside. The gunfire inside and outside the Route 66 Kitchen in Toledo lasted for several minutes.

Footage from the three-minute video shows a fight break out at the crowded bar. The incident turns into a shootout, with men pulling out guns and firing at individuals beyond the range of cameras. Video from the outside of the bar shows a man firing a gun inside the establishment through a door.

Seventeen shell casings were found on the ground or floor at the bar, and the front door was riddled with bullet holes.

The fight apparently began when a bar employee asked a man who was trying to sell marijuana to leave, Deputy Police Chief Don Kenney told the Toledo Blade.

Police say they don't believe any University of Toledo students were involved in the shooting near the campus.
