A waitress was shot in the leg and taken to the hospital. She is expected to survive, said investigators.  

About were about 40 people inside the business when a suspect fired at least five to six shots. 

Metro police say the OK Corral has had several similar problems in the past including another shooting last year. The department's special investigation section is looking into the business. 

"Whenever there are multiple incidents that require police, their license is subject to review as far as business," said Metro Lt. Dan McGrath.
