ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are looking for suspects in the deaths of two people at a bar.

Police say the two victims were at Startz Bar separately when shootings began early Sunday.

The victims were identified as 45-year-old Timothy Blair of north St. Louis County and 32-year-old Kemesa Newble of East St. Louis.

Police say a fight began inside the bar and all of the patrons were asked to leave.

Blair was standing with a group of men when he was shot in the abdomen by an unknown male. Newble was inside her car when she was caught in a crossfire between two men. Both died later at St. Louis hospitals.

The suspects fled on foot.
