Three people were shot early Monday morning after a fight broke out in line at a taco truck near a bar in San Antonio's LGBTQ nightlife district, television news reports.

One man waiting in line for tacos around 1 a.m. in front of Pegasus Nightclub grew enraged when another customer couldn't decide what to order, according to WOAI-TV. A manager at Pegasus told KSAT that one of the men involved used a racial slur. Bar security broke up the ensuing scuffle.

However, one of the quarreling men walked off, returning with a gun and shooting into the air. He jumped into his car, took a spin around the block and fired again, this time hitting two men and a woman.

The victims were taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center. Their injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Police are still looking for the shooter.

The Pride Center is offering free counseling from 2-6 p.m. today for people who wish to talk about the shooting.

Representatives from Pegasus also issued a statement Monday afternoon.
Pegasus Night Club would like to start by offering our deepest heartfelt sympathies to those that were injured as well as all of our friends and family that were in the bar at the time of the incident.

Although this was a random act of violence carried out by a disturbed individual. We will look into more safety precautions/measures in hopes of preventing another incident. We would like to invite our neighboring taverns/clubs to discuss how to create a safer place for our community, and look into any preventative measures that we all can take to ensure this never happens again.
