STAMFORD - A shooting late Saturday night left three men wounded and police searching for a gunman.

Police say the shooting happened at Harry O's Cafe in Stamford when five men were kicked out of the strip club after an argument erupted between them. One of the men then opened fire, police say.

Police say the wounded men were conscious and speaking to investigators outside the cafe at 137 Sellek St. They are now searching for the man who they say pulled the trigger and another suspect.

Peter Taylor, who for 32 years has lived two buildings over from the strip club, says there have rarely been problems that have emanated from there.

"I don't understand it, they used to keep things in pretty good order over there," he says.
