(KSTP) -- Police are investigating after a shooting at a Minneapolis nightclub early Saturday morning that injured a Minnesota Vikings player and eight others.

The Vikings released a statement saying defensive tackle Linval Joseph was shot in the calf at 400 Soundbar. He was treated for a minor injury and released from the hospital.

The Vikings say Joseph was an innocent bystander in the shooting.

Eight other people were injured in the incident; two of the people shot had serious injuries.

Police are still looking for the shooter.

The owner of Soundbar says the nightclub is shut down indefinitely. Safety protocols were in place and security is unsure how the gun got into the nightclub.

The nightclub was operating under a series of license conditions that required heightened security and other measures.

“Our business licensing unit has worked with this business (400 Soundbar), several times to address safety issues in this establishment,” Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said.
