A new soul food restaurant in Atlanta owned by rapper T.I. was the scene of a shootout between a group of patrons, leaving one man injured and also arrested for drugs, reports TMZ.

The shooting took place Sunday night outside of Scales 925. According to law enforcement, the incident started inside the restaurant on an upper deck patio, where a group of 5 or 6 men started arguing.

Staffers threw the men out, but police say the fight continued in the parking lot, where one man in a red shirt shot the victim once in the leg. According to TMZ, the victim escaped from the scene in a friend’s Porsche.

Police were responding to a 911 call about the shooting when they pulled over the Porsche. Cops say they found the victim bleeding, but he also had a duffle bag with 240 grams of marijuana and $6,000 in cash.

The victim was booked for reckless conduct and possession of marijuana. He told cops he did not know the shooter. The entire incident was captured on restaurant surveillance cameras.

Police are searching for the shooter.
