Pleasanton police are investigating a shooting at Club Nero early Sunday that injured a Fremont man during a brawl and fierce fight that moved into the club's parking lot in a strip shopping center at 4825 Hopyard Rd.
Police Lieutenant James Knox said 450 patrons were inside the club when the brawl started and that many refused police orders to break up the fight, moving instead outside the club to continue fighting.
"As the patrons from the club were exiting and milling into the parking lot, the fights continued," Knox said.
Told that one of the patrons was lying in the ground near Kinder's Restaurant, Knox said police found a 23 year old black male from Fremont lying on the ground with an apparent gunshot wound to his leg.
"He also sustained an injury to his head (and) was taken to Eden Hospital in Castro Valley by ambulance," Knox said. "The victim is in stable condition and his wounds are non-life threatening."
Officers on scene interviewed security personnel and witnesses in the area but a suspect has not been identified at this time. Anyone who witnessed the crime or has information pertinent to this investigation is asked to call the Pleasanton Police Department at (925) 931-5100.
