A shooting outside a sports bar off of E. Platte has sent one man to the hospital.
About 11:15 p.m. police received calls of shots being fired near the Mighty Cultural Sports Bar and Grill. When officers arrived, they found multiple shell casings and other evidence of a fight in the parking lot and in the street on Platte Place. They were also notified of a 19 year old man with a gun shot wound who had arrived at Memorial Hospital.
The man was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle where he is being treated for a bullet wound to the hip. We're told his injuries are not life threatening.
Police say they believe two large groups started fighting and it escalated to gun fire by one of the groups. The investigation is continuing.
