GREENVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Sheriff’s officials in a small west Georgia town are investigating a shooting at a bar that left 11 people injured.

Meriwether County Sheriff Chuck Smith tells WSB-TV that none of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

Smith said the gunfire happened shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday at C.J.’s Sports Bar and Grill in Greenville.

The sheriff said an argument began near a pool table and at least one person then pulled out a pistol and began shooting. No arrests had been announced by early Monday morning.

WSB reports that investigators planned to release more information later Monday.

Greenville is about 60 miles southwest of Atlanta.
