A dancer was among three people wounded in a shooting at Sugar's early Thursday on the city's Northwest Side.

According to San Antonio police, there were several people sitting at a table in the strip club at 2731 NW Loop 410 at 12:40 a.m., when a fight and a shootout broke out between two men.

Ruben Martinez, 35, suffered a gunshot wound to the right knee and left forearm, police said. A 24-year-old woman, Leticia Gonzalez, a dancer at the club, suffered a gunshot wound to the buttocks. Police said that Gonzalez was an innocent bystander.

A man considered to be the suspect in the case showed up at Methodist Hospital with a wound to the left buttocks. His name was immediately available. Charges are pending against him.

Although Martinez was involved in the gunfire, he was considered a victim because he fired his weapon in self-defense, police said.

None of the injuries suffered by the three were considered to be life-threatening.
