Crime scene tape surrounded an Arizona strip mall after an early morning shooting that sent one person to the hospital.

Just after 1 a.m. local time, Mesa Police Department officers responded to The Office Sports Bar.

Officers on the scene tell Phoenix-based KNXV the shooting occurred outside the bar.

One person, only described as a man, was rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound. His condition has not yet been released.

As Mesa Police Department detectives were en route to the scene, KNXV confirmed at least one man was taken into custody in connection with the shooting.

The immediate area around the bar may be closed for several hours while the Mesa Police Department mobile command van on the scene.

It is unknown what led to the shooting or if any other suspects were involved in the incident.
