While Denver Police investigate an off-duty FBI agent caught on camera accidentally firing a gun while dancing, the bar where it happened is now offering free drinks to the man who was shot.

In a  news release Monday, Mile High Spirits said, "The whole team at Mile High Spirits is praying for the victim’s quick recovery, and he’s welcome at Mile High Spirits to enjoy complimentary drinks forever."

The man was shot in the leg, and is expected to recover.

The bar also said it wants to talk to FBI representatives to find out why one of its agents was armed inside the bar, which is against the bar’s policy.

Our reporting partner 9News in Denver is reporting the agent was identified as 29-year-old Chase Bishop.

Video of the incident shows the man identified as Bishop doing a back flip while dancing Saturday night at the bar, when his gun fell out of his waistband. When he went to pick it up, the gun fired into a crowd.

Police are investigating if alcohol was a factor and are asking for other witnesses to come forward.
