A normal Stamford summer night turned unusual when a Stamford man fired a gun at random outside of Tino's Nightclub and Restaurant early Sunday morning.  

"This sort of violence and activity is foreign to the city of Stamford, it's foreign to our downtown and it's just not going to be permitted," said Stamford Mayor David Martin.  

Stamford police say 22-year-old Dayron Wills fired 10 rounds at a crowd, injuring 5 bystanders.  None of the victims were seriously hurt.  You can see the incident here caught on video by a witness.  Police  released the video, asking for the public's help.  They warn the images are graphic.  

Wills was arrested and in court today.  Also this afternoon, Stamford Mayor David Martin met with police, business owners near Tino's and the Downtown Special Services District, which hosts the city's outdoor summer concerts.

"There should not be any new worry as a result of Saturday night's incident," said Sandy Goldstein, president of the Stamford DSSD.  

After meeting with business owners today, including the owners of Tino's, the mayor says they're voluntarily giving up their liquor license and taking down their sign tomorrow.

"And they are going to close their restaurant, reorganize, come back with a different venue and there will be no more what we call 'promoted private parties,'" said Martin.  

Moving forward, Martin says the city will be increasing security during Alive@5, Jazz Up July and Friday and Saturday nights throughout the summer until the city feels the downtown is safe again.  

Tonight Wills is being held on $1 million bond  but hasn't entered a plea.
