New Details in shooting outside Bar 23

A 26-year-old man was shot outside Bar Twenty3 early Thursday morning after a dispute, Metro police said. The victim, Diban Kassem, was shot in the foot and his injury is not life-threatening.

Kassem told police he went to the club to pick up a friend. When he entered the bar to look for her, he said he bumped into a man who got upset. The suspect followed Kassem out to the parking lot and fired five shots, metro police spokeswoman Kristen Mumford said. Police say Kassem also had a gun inside his vehicle.

The suspect is described as a black man with short hair, 6-foot-2 and about 270 pounds, wearing a white t-shirt. He left the scene in a black Acura.
