Man Shot During Fight At Merced County Bar

Posted:
MERCED COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

A man is in the hospital after being shot at a bar in Merced County.

Shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday, Merced County sheriff's deputies were called to La Cascada Bar on the 2600 block of Santa Fe after receiving reports of shots fired.

When they arrived, deputies found out a 24-year-old man had been taken to Mercy Medical Center after being shot at the bar, sheriff's spokesman Tom MacKenzie said.

According to witnesses, two groups were involved in a fight inside the bar, and security had to intervene. The fight continued outside, and that's when several people heard gunshots, MacKenzie said.

The man suffered a gunshot wound to the left side of his chest and a cut to his head. He was later flown to a hospital in Modesto where he had surgery. He was last listed in critical condition, MacKenzie said.

It's not known if any arrests have been made.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Merced County Sheriff's Office at (209) 385-7472.
