A man claimed to be a UFC fighter from California before opening fire at a Texas bar he was denied access to and wounding eight people.
The San Antonio police chief, William McManus, said in a press conference that a manhunt for the shooter was ongoing. He said none of the eight people were injured - five women and three men between the ages of 23 and 41.
He said the shooter had been rejected by Rebar because of drunkenness.
Chief McManus said, "At around 11:30 p.m., we received a call for shots from a bar across the street. Officials arrived at the scene and found that eight people had been shot from the bar across the street."
He said the shooter was part of a group of several women and a few men had turned away from Rebar.
"One of the two men then made a statement: 'Don't you know who I am? I'm a UFC fighter from California' - and they went away.
"Then he went back to his car, pulled out a long rifle, went back across the street and opened fire.
"He met eight people. None of them died. They are in a stable condition. The hardest was one that was hit in the back."
He said the worst injury was someone hit on the back. Two of the suffered grazes and refused hospital treatment.
