DENVER - Five people were shot outside of a nightclub early Saturday morning, according to Denver Police.
Police say it happened outside of Club Vinyl at 11th Avenue and Broadway.
Police say several people opened fire on the victims just before 2 a.m. as they were walking with the out crowd outside of the club.
According to police, all five victims were transported to Denver Health Medical Center where they are in stable condition.
Denver Health Medical Center says one person is in critical condition and the other four were treated and released.
"It was bullets flying everywhere. It was automatic. It was like a machine gun, ba-dop ba-bop ba-bop ba-bop. It was just really crazy," said Kendall Davis, a security guard with the nearby 11th Avenue Hotel. "At first we hear a wave of shots and we didn't realize it was gunfire until we seen a lot of people running by. So then definitely I wanted to secure our building, so we hit all the lights, locked the front door, secured our business because we didn't want any shooters running in."
"It was just mass chaos. Basically, once we realized that there was no more shooters, I just kind of came out and made sure no one got hit. We realized that a bullet went through one of our windows, room 19, so I had to run out there and check and make sure the resident up there didn't get shot," said Davis. "It was pretty crazy."
A Bay Area rapper, E-40, was performing at a sold out show in the nightclub.
The victims' names were not released.
Anyone with information about the shootings is urged to call the Denver Police Department at 720-913-2000, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).
