Heated political debate spurs shooting at Cleveland bar

The Associated Press

CLEVELAND (AP) — 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 (http://bit.ly/2af95Se ) 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 hospitalized 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.
