MASON CITY – An altercation at Spike’s Bar in Mason City lead to a fight, injured people and gunfire.

According to Mason City police, on December 23, 2018, at 1:55 AM, an altercation with gunshots fired was reported in front of Spikes bar, 18 7th Street SE, Mason City. Several people were taken to the hospital and treated for injuries. Police didn’t say who was hurt or the extent of injuries.

No injuries were reported due to gunfire.

UPDATE: A person at the scene told NIT:

“An ambulance was called to the Taco Johns parking lot for a person who was bleeding, he said he wasn’t shot, but he was banged up pretty bad and bleeding. Witnesses said three black males, one in a gray jump suit and two with dreds took off walking… Another witness said she saw them get into a vehicle maybe a silver Tahoe. Another vehicle pulled up to the emergency vehicle and said they were also a assault victim, and said that the guys were trying to shoot him in the back. Two females were taken to the hospital (I think the cops drove them, instead of by ambulance).”

Ambulance dispatched to Mercy….2 males being brought in, one was 25, they looked pretty banged up with abrasions, both complaining of pain and one with right jaw pain.

The incident remains under investigation and anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Mason City Police Department at 641- 421-3636 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-383-0088.

Assisting the Mason City Police Department was the Cerro Gordo Sheriff’s Department.

    Meth heads everywhere. Tweeking zombies. Paranoia, depression lows and anxiety at its best. Making people self made schizophrenics. One use unbalances the brain chemicals NEVER to return to normal. Dumbasses are secretly using, passing sickness to their spouses, significant others and family members blindly. Imagine your spouse gives head or sex for meth then comes home to lay with you. Yay you get their meth body sex. Yes hazmat suit and gloves are worn to deal or clean out homes meth is found in or used in. Hazmat suits are not used in any other drug clean up. But yet most people live and lay with meth users daily thinking it doesn’t affect them. It does. Doesn’t matter who you are, rich or poor, clean or dirty, nice house or homeless if you use, you are a walking schizo sickness. Hahahahaha METH HEADS SHOULD HAVE TO WEAR HAZMAT SUITS 247 TO PROTECT US ALL FROM THEM. One time user or continuous users. Educate yourselves, River City is a meth cess pool and neighboring towns.

    In the slave days it is the white man that taught the black man how to be. Blacks watched and learned white man behavior. Beat or degrade anyone not behaving or against them. Keep a white woman in the home, not for love but for cooking and cleaning mainly, the maid. Taught them to use and have many women on the side for love, sex, and company. It is the screwed up white man that taught the black man, then now whites want to be racist against the black man saying they are wrong.

      Afraid of what? When identifying any person saying their race is not racist. If a white man had a gun it would be white man with a gun. If a black man had a gun it would be black man with a gun. If a Chinese man had a gun it would be Chinese man with a gun. If it was a Mexican man it would be a Mexican man with a gun. No big deal, it’s just an identifier. Everyone wanting to stir up trouble about racist crap when it’s not about that. Just a diversion to take away what really happened and why.

    Nothing grosser then Tweaker sweat out the pores. Getting sick from a tweaker and not knowing . Getting all over. Wipe the gym equipment down, shopping carts, wipe ya houses down and anything ya touch that a tweak might of . Nothing worse then meth sweat except meth sex. Don’t swap kisses, tongues, clothes or sex, no eating meth women, or sucking meth men. Barf barf barf. Have a merry non meth Christmas and non meth New Year

        Wait until you’re unexplainable sick all the time, stomach and bowel problems, more colds and headaches. Only to find out after a long period of sickness that it is your bf hidden meth habit causing your problems. At least someone posts what to look for and dangers of this man made drug. Anhydrous, battery acid, rat poison in someone’s body,.you dumb if you don’t think that crap isn’t getting passed onto or into whoever they around. Poor peoples drug.

    There’s a few snitches in there so they might find out who. Criminals have guns but if you have a cc permit and are carrying you are also illegal if drinking drugging at the time or in most bars it is weapons free zones. Which means any weapon. Seems like there is to many hot head cc carriers wanting a chance to test the system and laws in place.

      Your concealed carry permit isn’t void unless you are over the legal limit. And nobody under the influence of narcotics is legally allowed to carry.

    Meth is bad. They condemn houses it is found in. Body suits are worn by those having to clean up where it’s been used. It comes out a tweakers sweat and pores, sex fluids, saliva. Yuck! so it is on clothes, bedding, towels, transfers to stuff they touch. You don’t have to use meth to be contaminated, just being around or relations with a user can put a person in trouble or at risk, being positive for it. Tweakers don’t care if it harms others around them. Meth and ecstasy same thing. Tweaks are gross. Most have VD and hep C cause makes peoples immunity low and triggers herpes virus ta come out, unprotected sex. Best to stay completely away from anyone using meth or X. Gag a maggot!!

    You got that right. Clear out the drugies getting deliveries. Go back to your old bars and do your shit there. Can’t try to upgrade hoes, they to tweaked for that. The meth is running rampant in this city. Not much hope for a tweaker. Look for the huge pupils, mouth sores, red nose with them sores, sniffing all time, pimples, anxiety, fidgeting, comes out tweaked sweat and gets on everything , contaminates everything clothes, bedding, people they touch and Not all tweakers are obvious, when large doses are used the more obvious it is. Effects the brain. No cure for it, or the screwed up brain. If you with a tweaker you are also contaminated.

    Who cares what race or color people are except for identification reasons. Saying a black man with a gun is not racist. There are just as many black criminals as there are white criminals in this town. Probably just another drug deal gone bad in the parking lot again. New trashy customers getting drive up delivery service. Boy friends tend to get upset when they women give out free head for it. You can’t take drug fiends out of dirt end and move them up town without trash life following them. Clean out the new low end hoes and problem solved.

    Another drug deal gone bad. Possibly the same silver/white Tahoe that was involved in an altercation up in manly/worth county a month or two back. African Americans driving that vehicle also.

      Not all black people are bad. It’s hard to bring them to justice when nobody can identify them, or the vehicle they are driving.
