Man arrested after shooting in bar parking lot

A 52-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of aggravated battery early Monday after police say he shot a 23-year-old man in the leg.

The two men were arguing at around 1 a.m. in the parking lot of New Caesars Palace, 4331 W. Central, when the older man pulled out a gun and fired one shot.

He was later arrested at a home in the 1100 block of North Hazelwood, police said.

The gun was found. The relationship of the two men and why they were fighting wasn’t known Monday morning.
