A bar fight turned into an early morning shooting on the Labor Day holiday in Richmond.

Richmond police say a 34-year-old man was shot early Monday morning after he was involved in an altercation while leaving the Paraiso Sports bar located at 140 Collins Road. Witnesses said the victim was leaving the bar just after midnight with other patrons when another man, who was also leaving the bar, started arguing with him about a woman the second man wanted to take home.

During the altercation police say a single shot was fired, striking the victim somewhere on his back side. The victim ran through the parking lot, where he later collapsed.

Witnesses gave descriptions of possible suspects to the police and all leads in the shooting are being investigated. The shooter was described only as a Hispanic male wearing a green shirt.

The 34-year-old victim was transported by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston where he is listed as stable.

Police say several persons of interest in the shooting have been identified, however no arrests have been made at this time.
