Victim in Hospital After Shooting at Buffalo Wild Wings

April 15, 2009

Greenville, North Carolina police say a victim in Tuesday night's shooting at a popular sports bar has been treated and released from the hospital.

The shooting happened at Buffalo Wild Wings on Arlington Boulevard.

Police say Joe Van Holden of Greenville was shot once in the leg. A hand gun was used, but police say they're not sure exactly what type of gun.

Authorities are searching two people connected to the shooting. They plan to meet with the victim Wednesday afternoon to gain more information about the shooting.

The owner of the Buffalo Wild Wings franchise issued a statement Wednesday morning.

Eric Valera said in the written statement, "We are cooperating fully with law enforcement officials regarding this matter. Our thoughts are with those who are affected by this terrible incident, but to comment further at this time would be inappropriate due to the fact that there is an active investigation."
