About 15 minutes after shots were reported fired outside a Far East Side bar early Saturday morning, a man showed up at a local hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound, Madison police reported.

Police were called to Club LaMark, 1525 N. Stoughton Road, about 12:45 a.m. Saturday on the report of shots fired, Sgt. Paul Jacobsen said in a statement.

Arriving officers determined a disturbance occurred inside the bar and then continued outside near the parking lot, with a man shooting at another man outside, Jacobsen said.

The 36-year-old man who showed up at the hospital with the gunshot wound told police he was shot outside of Club LaMark and driven to the hospital by a friend, Jacobsen said.

The shooter was described as a man with dreadlocks.
