ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — Five people were taken to the hospital after a shooting at the 52eighty Sports Bar in Adams County Saturday night.

The Adams County Sheriff's Office said two suspects were among the five gunshot victims and were taken into custody.

52eighty Sports Bar is located at 7575 Broadway in unincorporated Adams County, near the intersection of I-25 and Hwy 36. The call came in to dispatch at approximately 8:34 p.m.

A witness at the scene, Corina Pino, said they were celebrating her mother's 60th birthday party when shots rang out. Her 17-year-old stepson and her sister-in-law, Heather Harmon, were hit by gunfire.

“Her kids are maybe 15 and 11 or 10," said Pino. "They had to see their mom shot in a bathroom on the floor, fighting for her life.”

Pino said her stepson was shot in the leg and is recovering. Harmon was shot in the chest and is in the ICU in critical condition. Pino said the shooting was a traumatic event, since many of the guests were children.

"My kids they're happy to be at their grandmother's party and then they had to slide and throw themselves on the ground to avoid a bullet," said Pino. "It's not okay.”

Pino said her family didn't know the shooters.

The Sheriff's Office said their investigation remained active and no other details were released, including the identity of the suspects and the circumstances that led to the shooting.
