ELLENDALE, Del. (AP) — Delaware police are investigating who shot a man at a bar hosting performances by local rap artists.

The Delaware State Police said the shooting happened early Saturday after several fights broke out inside the Gateway Tavern in Ellendale, about 30 miles (48.3 kilometers) south of Dover.

Troopers say they found an unnamed 38-year-old man outside the bar who had been shot below the waist. He was rushed to a local hospital with injuries that aren’t believed to be life-threatening.

State police say the fights that started inside the tavern also continued outside. Gunshots were heard outside after the victim was located in the parking lot.

Police say they have no information about any suspects.
