The Ready Room's name certainly gives off an anything-can-happen vibe -- but what went down there early Sunday morning still managed to be unexpected, not to mention terrifying. Someone reportedly opened fire on guests from a wedding reception, striking five of them. And now, the Denver Police Department has put out a crime alert in the hope of pinning down the person behind the gat.

Fortunately, none of the wounds was life-threatening, even though one person was shot in the face. Nonetheless, the crime is clearly a DPD priority, as evidenced by the info contained in the release below.
