SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Police are looking for a gunman who opened fire at a busy nightclub in downtown Salt Lake City, injuring six people, some seriously.

Salt Lake City police Lt. Craig Gleason says hundreds of people fled the Inferno Cantina Night Club after the shots rang out about 11:45 p.m. Saturday. He told KSL-TV some of the injuries are serious, but none appear to be life threatening.

The gunman fled with at least one other person in a stolen black Cadillac that the Utah Highway Patrol found early Sunday about 5 miles away.

Det. Cody Loughy told the Salt Lake Tribune that an armed guard for the club pulled his own handgun and fired at the car, but doesn't know if he hit anything. The suspects remain at large.
