Authorities were called to Dr Rudi’s Bar on the waterfront at around 2:45 AM when a group became restless after being thrown out.

A fight broke out in front of the bar, causing the man to shoot his gun into the ceiling of the foyer.

“I think there were probably six shots – me and colleagues all ran to the back of the club and hid behind the DJ booth,” witness Dion Baker told 1 NEWS.

“Walking across the glass at the top escalator was like, wow. More of a reality check that I was so close to a gunshot. “

No one was injured in the incident and no arrests have been made at this stage.

“This was an extremely serious incident involving a large number of bystanders, and it is unbelievably fortunate that no one was injured,” said Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Franich.
