Club attendee gets shot

Trying to break up a fight outside of a nightclub early Sunday earned one Columbus man a bullet in the arm.

The 27-year-old got his wound, which wasn't life threatening, while in the parking lot of Glory Days Bar & Grill, at 3846 St. Marys Road, said Columbus Police Lt. Lynn Joiner. While officers were told he was trying to stop a fight in the parking lot around 2:45 a.m., not much else is known, because the man wouldn't tell them much.

"He wasn't real cooperative with officers up there at the hospital," Joiner said. "It's still under investigation. They'll talk to him after he gets out of the hospital."

After getting hit in the upper left arm, the 27-year-old was taken by a private vehicle to The Medical Center, where officers first spoke with him. They then went to the club, though everyone had left by the time police arrived, Joiner said.

Nothing was found on the scene. There are no suspects or arrests.

The last shooting at the St. Marys Road club happened in late June, when a Phenix City woman in her early 20s was hit in the upper chest and leg. She was struck when the club was closing for the night, and she was walking into the parking lot when the suspect — also in the crowd — started shooting.

Police said then the woman probably didn't know the shooter.
