Police say a man has been arrested and charged after a shooting outside a Providence, Rhode Island, nightclub early Saturday morning.

The Providence Journal reports 21-year-old Luis DaCosta is charged with felony assault and weapons charges.

The shooting happened around 2 a.m. outside of Tantric Nightclub on North Main Street.

One man was shot and taken to Rhode Island Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Police say they're investigating whether the shooting was gang-related.

It's unclear whether DaCosta has an attorney who could comment on the charges.
