Texas City police Monday were investigating a fight at the Texas City Dike early Sunday that led to one man being shot, officials said.

Police received a report of a shooting about 1:55 a.m. Sunday when a 20-year-old man arrived at Mainland Center Hospital with a gunshot wound to his right ankle, officials said.

The man told police that he was shot during a large fight on the beach area of the dike near the 4-mile marker, officials said.

Police have identified a suspect and are pursuing an arrest warrant, but didn’t release a name, officials said.

The victim was treated and released Sunday, officials said.
