Police in Minneapolis are investigating a weekend shooting at a bar in the city's Lyn-Lake area.

He was subsequently transported to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment. 

Police gave no other details about the incident. According to the Star Tribune as well as police scanners, the bar in question was the CC Club at the corner of Lyndale and 26th Street.
