A 21-year-old man was shot in the groin and upper left leg about 11:55 p.m. Friday at a North Toledo bar after a bouncer told the man he couldn't enter, police said.
Lamar Allen, whose address was not immediately available, was taken to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center. A hospital spokesman said she had no information about a person by that name.
Police said Mr. Allen and two other men went to Marteds Cafe, 2853 Lagrange St. Police said that Mr. Allen was not allowed in because he did not have valid identification and a witness told police, he was recognized as being part of a disturbance on New Year's Eve.
Police said Mr. Allen began to yell and push his way in and punched the bouncer who tried to stop him.
Afterward, a witness heard several gun shots. A limping Mr. Allen and others ran from the bar. He was found more than two blocks away in the 200 block of Austin Street.
