BLADES, Del.-Delaware State Police have arrested a Laurel man accused of shooting another man in the parking lot of a Blades bar. 

Troopers responded to Marinas Bar on 16 North Market St. in Blades at around 1:10 a.m. Friday for a reported shooting.  

When they arrived at the scene, they were told that a 34-year-old man had been driven to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to his torso.  

Witnesses also told officers about several suspects involved in the shooting leaving the bar in a black PT Cruiser heading southbound on Sussex Highway toward Laurel.  

Dispatchers put out a general bulletin on the car which was eventually stopped by Laurel police officers.  

Several people, including 19-year-old Donregus Holland of Laurel were arrested without incident. 

Troopers searched the car where they say they found a .22-caliber revolver under the passenger's side seat.

Authorities said that through interviews they found out that a fight broke out in the parking lot of the bar and as the 34-year-old victim, who worked at Marinas as security, was attempting to break it up, he was shot in the torso by Holland.  

Holland then took off with several other people in the PT Cruiser and hid the gun under the front passenger's seat before police stopped them, investigators said.
 
Detectives are continuing their investigation into this incident and more arrests could be forthcoming.  The victim has since been transferred to another area hospital where he is currently listed in stable condition.
 
Holland was arrested on the charges of attempted first-degree murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.  

He was arraigned and held in default of $150,000 cash bond.
