ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) One man was injured and another arrested after a shooting outside the Press Bar in downtown St. Cloud early Saturday morning.

The victim--a 31 year-old man from St. Cloud--had non life-threatening injuries. Police say he was an employee of the bar and had told two females to leave because they were under age. Later, he saw one of the females walking toward the door with the suspect, and he followed them out. Once outisde, a verbal confrontation ensued, with the female and the suspect both spitting on the victim, and the suspect firing multiple rounds from a gun.

The suspect identified himself as 24 year-old Courtney Terrell Holmes from Macon, Mississippi, although investigators question whether that is his real identity.

The victim's name has not been released. He remained in the hospital Sunday.

Anyone who witnessed the shooting was being asked to contact St. Cloud police or Tri-County CrimeStoppers.
