SALT LAKE CITY-- Police are searching for a suspect after a shooting in a strip club parking lot Friday night.

It happened at the Trails Gentleman's Club located at 921 South 300 West in Salt Lake City.

Officers say a man fired several shots in the parking lot, but no one was hit.

"There was some sort of altercation in the bar and a patron was ejected from the establishment," said Lt. Josh Scharman of the Salt Lake City Police Department. "Once he got outside into the parking lot, it sounds like he got a hand gun out of his car and fired several rounds into the air in the parking lot."

Lt. Scharman said police have identified a potential suspect, and are in the process of tracking him down.
