ORLANDO, Fla. – A 55-year-old man was shot early Monday outside the Happy Place Bar in Orange County, sheriff's officials said.

The shooting was reported at 1:10 a.m. at 7400 Southland Blvd. in Orlando.

Orange County sheriff's investigators said an argument between a security guard and another person led to shooting in the parking lot.

Deputies said the man who was shot was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center in stable condition.

No arrests have been made. Deputies told News 6, however, that a vehicle may have been involved in Monday's shooting. A description has not been released.
