At least one person was injured in a shooting outside an Antioch bar overnight.

Police said right before the shootout, several people had been escorted out of the Thirsty Turtle Bar for getting into a heated argument shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday.

The incident happened on Bell Road near the corner of Blue Hole Road.

Not long after the patrons got kicked out, others reported hearing gunshots.

Police didn't find any victims at the scene when they got there, but later, a victim did show up at Stone Crest Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Authorities said that person was expected to recover.

Bullet holes were found in at least one vehicle at the scene. The shooting remained under investigation.
