ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say a customer who was kicked out of an Atlanta sports bar returned with a gun and started shooting.

A police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said one person was wounded in the shooting outside 656 Sports Bar & Grille early Sunday morning. The incident report says the shooter had been kicked out of the southwest Atlanta sports bar for being disorderly while under the influence, and warned people against going inside, threatening to “wet the place.”

Bystanders told police the man drove by in a black sedan, and started shooting. A passenger in a car stopped in front of the bar was hit, and treated for a knee wound at a hospital.

A bar window was damaged. Police are reviewing surveillance footage.

Further details haven’t been released.
