PINE BLUFF, Wis. -

Dane County sheriff’s deputies are investigating a shooting that happened near a bar west of Madison early Sunday morning, according to a release.

Around 2 a.m. deputies and Mount Horeb police were dispatched to the Red Mouse Bar at 3738 County Road P in the unincorporated community of Pine Bluff for reports of a disturbance, officials said.

An initial report given to deputies said there was a large fight at the location and there were possibly shots fired in the area, according to the release. Upon arrival, police did not find an active disturbance, individuals were leaving the area, and there was no indication that anyone had been injured.

The man was able to get himself to the hospital, and told police his injuries were sustained in the area of 3738 County Road P. His injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.
