Two men were shot outside a southwest Houston sports bar early Sunday and the search continues for the man who police say fired the gun.

It happened around 4am outside Cube's Sports Bar on Plainfield and Bissonnet near the Southwest Freeway.

Police said a disturbance started inside the club poured out into the parking lot.

Ox Jones works security at Cube's. He said things inside the bar quickly became violent, and that's when security started forcing everyone outside.

"We escorted people out in the process of everything happening. Once we stepped back inside, that's when everything, the fight just went off," Jones said.

Someone fired multiple shots in the crowded parking lot.

One man was shot in the head and was rushed to Ben Taub General Hospital where he underwent surgery. At last check, he was alive but his condition was unknown.

Another man was shot in the leg. He was taken to a local hospital by friends. Police said he is stable and expected to survive.

Police are interviewing witnesses and working to determine what led up to this shooting and who is responsible for the victims' injuries.

At least two men were detained at the scene for further questioning.
