Houston police arrested Raymond Lee Mazon, 26, after they say he opened fire on three people after getting kicked out of a Midtown club early Sunday morning.

Police say Mazon was ordered to leave Link Lounge at 2901 Fannin and walked away about 12:45 a.m. Sunday. In the 1100 block of Tuam, he encountered a group of three people and got into an argument with them. He took out a pistol and shot them all.

Jacqueline G. Ortiz, 24, Kevin A. Bernard, 28, and Compton L. Coffy, 37, were all shot, Ortiz in the hip, the other two in the leg. The injuries are non-life-threatening, and the three are being treated at Ben Taub Hospital.

Mazon faces three charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon
