A man was shot in the buttocks during an altercation at a bar in North Park early Sunday morning, San Diego police confirmed.

The shooting happened just after 1 a.m. at True North Tavern in the 3800 block of 30th Street.

Police say a 30-year-old man got into an argument with an unknown male suspect inside the bar. The suspect took out a gun and shot the victim in the butt.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment. His current condition is unknown.

Police were not able to locate the shooting suspect and say there is no suspect information to release at this time.

The incident is under investigation.

This isn’t the first time an altercation near this North Park bar has led to violence.

Last October, a man was stabbed in the cheek outside True North Tavern after getting into a verbal confrontation inside the bar with another patron. The fight spilled into the street and the victim in that fight sustained a six-inch laceration to the face.
