Wiley, a vet technician, is remembered as someone who had a big heart, family members told KARE 11. Friends describe her as "bright, joyful and supportive," said WCCO.

Investigators believe there were multiple shooters involved and three men, ages 29, 32 and 33, have been arrested in connection to the incident. As of Sunday, they were in custody at the hospital, being treated for the injuries they suffered during the shootout. 

Police arrived at the bar early Sunday to find a "chaotic scene," with police spokesperson Steve Linders saying "there were gunshot wound victims lying in the street outside the bar, there were gunshot wound victims lying on the sidewalk outside the bar, and there were gunshot wound victims lying on the floor inside the bar."

The department also said that officers were helped by good Samaritans in providing first aid to victims.

The shooting is still under investigation.
