Delaware State Police say a Wilmington man was shot in the leg during a brawl at a New Castle bar.

Police say the shooting occurred just before 1 a.m. Saturday in the 3800 block of North DuPont Highway.

Investigators say patrons rushed out of the bar after a large fight began. During the brawl, a 30-year-old man was struck in the face with a pool stick, knocking him to the ground. State Police say the man was shot in the leg as he stood up.

The shooting victim was taken in a private vehicle to a local hospital where he was treated for the wound that state police say was not considered life-threatening.
