One man is in police custody and another in the hospital following a shooting near a bar in Central El Paso.

It happened just before midnight Friday near the George Washington Lounge on Lamar and Montana.

It's unclear what led up to the shooting but one witness tell us it was a security guard who shot at the victim.

"He left the back door trying to scare them away. He got a blank pistol and just pointed it at them and they were mocking him. Then one of them appeared to get hurt when he crossed the street running," said witness, Robert Sanchez.

El Paso Police confirm they do have one person in custody at this time.

No word on what that person is being held on or charges they may face.

More updates to come.
