Caldwell police are looking for suspects after a bar fight and a report of shots fired early Saturday.

According to a Caldwell Police Department news release, police responded to The Ranch, 4919 US 20/26, at about 1 a.m. Police said they found one man at The Ranch who had been punched in the face and had lacerations, bumps and bruises, but had not been shot.

Police said the suspect they’re looking for in the fight is a bearded blond man who was wearing a black vest.

Officers said they found spent bullet shell casings outside the bar that appeared to be from a handgun. Police did not say how many casings they found, but noted they appeared to have been fired outside. Police said they don’t believe anyone was shot.

According to the release, police don’t have a description of the person who fired the shots. Spokesperson Char Jackson told the Idaho Statesman that it does not appear the man involved in the fight was the individual who fired a gun.

Police are asking anyone with information on the incidents to call non-emergency dispatch at 208-454-7531 or CrimeStoppers at 208-343-COPS (2677).
