Cleveland - A heated argument over presidential politics turned violent at a bar in Cleveland, leaving one man with a gunshot wound to the leg.
Cleveland.com reports the shooting at Winston's Bar came after two men - both bar regulars - started talking about the upcoming presidential election on the back patio. It's unclear which candidates the men supported. The conversation soon escalated into a shouting match.
Police say the 45-year-old suspect left the bar, came back and opened fire, striking the 60-year-old man once in the leg.
The website reports the victim remained hospitalised on Tuesday. His condition was unknown.
Police say the shooter ran out of the bar and fled in a truck. He has not been formally charged and is not in custody.
