RENO — On Wednesday at about 3:30 a.m., a fight erupted after employees of the Wurk Bar, located at 214 W. Commercial Row, Reno, asked two customers to leave the bar.

The fight ended with only minor injuries and the two customers left.

However, the customers returned about 45 minutes later, with a third individual to re-engage and challenge the victims.  A second fight erupted resulting in one suspect stabbing two bar patrons. 

One of the first customers, identified as Joseph Matthew Vigil, 24, also retrieved a shotgun from a vehicle and fired it three times at the bouncer, whose name is being withheld at this time. The bouncer was struck with numerous pellets. 

All three victims were treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries. 

While the first two suspects have been located, the third suspect has not. The Reno Police Department is asking for help in identifying and locating the third suspect.  Anyone with information is requested to call Reno Police Department’s Detective Division at 334-2115 or Secret Witness at 322-4900.
