A 25-year-old Pittsburgh man was shot once in the arm early this morning inside an after-hours club on the South Side.

The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to UPMC Mercy after being shot in the upper right arm at the Caravan Club in the 1100 block of East Carson Street.

People ran from the club around 2:45 a.m. after hearing the gunshot, Zone 3 Sgt. Dennis Washington said today.

The victim was among the patrons who fled the establishment.

He told police that he did not see who shot him. He heard a pop and saw that he had been hit, Sgt. Washington said.

The man did not report any altercation prior to the shooting.

Zone 3 detectives are investigating.
