MARIETTA, GA (CBS46) -

Marietta police are investigating a shootout outside a local bar which wounded one man.

Investigators did not comment on what sparked the shooting that began near the intersection of Garrison Road and Powder Springs Street SW around 3:30 a.m. Thursday.

A number of people were outside Milo's bar on Garrison Road when something sparked an altercation. That dispute divided several people between Milo's parking lot and a second parking lot across the street. 

Guns were pulled and shots were fired between those involved, according to police. The victim was sitting inside a vehicle in one of the parking lots. At least one bullet struck him. His friend helped him escape and drive to a gas station a block away to get help.

Police said the victim was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital for treatment. His condition was not released.

The shooting is under investigation. CBS46 News will have more details as they are released.
