Just before 3 a.m. Monday, police responded to a shooting near Power Ultra Lounge, 220 W. Sixth St.

Jay Taylor, 32, of North Little Rock, was shot in his upper back. He was transported to UAMS and was in stable condition later Monday.

Police listed eight witnesses in a report. Two men told officers that Taylor was drunk and had been loitering outside Power Ultra Lounge "all night," a report states. After being asked to leave, Taylor walked across the street from the club, got into a Mazda Tribute and talked with someone inside.

Taylor got back out of the Tribute and walked toward the club, and the other person in the SUV stepped out, pointed a gun at Taylor and started shooting.

Witnesses said the gun jammed, and the shooter cleared the jam and fired several more shots.

The gunman -- described in the report as 5-foot-6, 130 pounds, of unknown sex and race -- fled west on West Sixth Street.

No arrests had been made Tuesday.

Power Ultra Lounge posted a statement on social media Tuesday saying the shooting occurred after hours and did not take place on the club's property.
