Two people have gunshot wounds following a gang-related disturbance at a Reno bar.
Just before three o'clock Saturday morning police were called to an argument at the El Patron bar on East Fourth Street.
Two groups of men clashed at the bar. As one group got into a car to leave the parking lot, one of the passengers fired several shots toward a group outside of the bar.
One customer was shot twice in the leg. A security guard was also shot once in the arm. Both victims were taken to Renown for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Reno resident Lionel Castro was arrested in connection with the shooting. He was charged with two counts of battery with a deadly weapon.
The incident is still under investigation.
