One man is dead and another injured after a shooting early Sunday outside a gentlemen’s club, Arlington police said.

The police are investigating whether the suspect used self-defense.

Officers were dispatched around 1:13 a.m. Sunday to the 2700 block of Majesty Drive in Arlington, south of Interestate 30 and east of Texas 360, after reports of a shooting, according to an Arlington Police Department news release. There they found a 30-year-old man and a 40-year-old man lying on the ground.

The 30-year-old was dead at the scene and the 40-year-old was injured and is expected to survive, police said. The suspected shooter remained at the scene and was arrested by officers.

A gun was found near the 40-year-old.

Officers discovered that the man who shot the other two men knew at least one of them, according to the release. After conversations with witnesses, investigators assume that the 40-year-old victim knew the suspect and had previous conflicts with him. While the two were arguing in the parking lot outside the club, a third man became involved.

Shortly afterwards, shots were fired, the police wrote in the press release.

Based on witness statements and where the firearm was found, investigators “have not ruled out the possibility that the shooting occurred in self-defense,” the news release said.

Arlington police have spoken with the Tarrant County Prosecutor’s Office and no charges have yet been filed. He was not arrested.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
