Police in Providence are investigating a late night shooting outside a city sports bar that sent one person to the hospital.

Police say someone standing across the street from the Copa Sports Bar fired multiple shots at the building at about midnight Sunday.

Six bullets struck the building and shell casings were found at the scene.

The injured person was not struck by a bullet but was hit in the face by shrapnel debris and taken to Rhode Island Hospital. The injuries are not considered serious.

Police do not think the suspect was a patron at the business.

No arrests have been made.
