ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - A fight turned shooting Saturday night leaves one man hospitalized.

According to investigators, the incident happened just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday at the Aragona Club, 320 Kent Street, after officers attempted to break up a large and unruly crowd.

Police claim that at one point, someone pepper sprayed inside the club—that’s when a 26-year-old man was shot in the stomach.

He was taken to a local hospital in critical condition and as of Monday, is considered stable.

Police tweeted about the incident early Sunday morning:

No arrests have been made but an investigation is ongoing.
