    TEXAS CITY

     

    A man was shot in the arm early Saturday while police were working to control the crowd at Texas City nightclub.

     

    Texas City Police were dispatched after receiving reports of overcrowding at Jungle Bar in Mainland City Centre, 10000 Emmett F. Lowry Expressway, just after midnight Saturday.

     

    The bar was at capacity and officers were asked to help close it down, police said. Hitchcock Police and deputies with the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office were called to assist with the crowd, police said.

     

    As officer were attempting to control the crowd, they heard several gunshots ring out near The Storage Place in the same parking lot as the Jungle Bar, police said.

     

    Officers found a man with a gunshot wound to the right bicep and several vehicles with bullet holes in the front and back windows, officers said.

     

    “We believe an altercation took place in the club and spilled out to the parking lot,” said officer Allen Bjerke of the Texas City Police Department.

     

    “The victim was going to his car when he was hit. The crowd was very loud and sirens were on, so the crowd did not go into chaos as the shots were fired.”

     

    The victim was transported to a University of Texas Medical Branch hospital in Galveston.

     

    Police collected shell casings from the scene, but no suspect had been identified and an investigation was underway, police said.
