Authorities are investigating a stabbing and shooting that happened outside of a Providence bar.

Police were called to the intersection of Orms and Esten Streets around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

A 27-year-old woman was found in a driveway with a gunshot wound to her stomach. She was taken to the hospital with injuries not considered life threatening.

Investigators say it started after a group of men were harassing a woman outside of Patrick's Pub. Police say a man inside the pub told them to stop and the confrontation led to a fight.

Police say a man in the group fired a gun, but the bullet missed his intended target and hit a female bystander. A 31-year-old man was hit with a bottle and stabbed.

Police say no arrests have been made.
