A Lancaster man was treated and released after being shot Thursday morning outside Goodtime Charlie's on West Meeting Street.
A motorist was driving by the business about 5 a.m. and saw a Chevrolet Impala speeding out of the parking lot, according to a Lancaster Police Department incident report. The witness went inside and saw the shooting victim seated near the bar with a gunshot wound to his upper left thigh, the report said.
The witness took the man to Springs Memorial Hospital. He was then flown to Carolina's Medical Center in Charlotte. He was released before 3 p.m. Thursday.
The victim said he and his assailant were in the restaurant at the same time before the shooting, the report said.
No words were exchanged between the two, the victim told police. He said he left the building about 15 minutes after the assailant did.
When he left, the assailant pulled out from the Lancaster Women's Center parking lot, pulled into the parking lot of Goodtime Charlie's and fired one shot out the window, the report said.
The man fell to the ground after he was hit in the thigh, the report said.
The victim told police he had seen the assailant once before, and that was several months ago.
Police have not made an arrest, but are following some leads, Lt. James Kirk said.
The victim describes the vehicle that the assailant was driving as a late-model black Impala with dark-tinted windows and factory rims, the report said.
