A 21-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man was booked into the Douglas County Jail early this morning on suspicion of intent to commit second-degree murder after a bystander was shot in the leg outside a bar in downtown Lawrence.

Marck Edward Fristoe was booked into jail at 5:55 a.m. He is also facing charges of criminal property damage and domestic battery.

Sgt. Damon Thomas of the Lawrence Police Department described the victim, whose injury is not life threatening, as a bystander who was shot after an altercation broke out in a parking lot outside Brother’s Bar & Grill, 1105 Massachusetts St., at about 1:45 a.m.

Thomas said that an off-duty officer followed one of the vehicles that left the scene, leading police to locate Fristoe during a car stop near 13th Street and Haskell Avenue.

Journal-World news partner Operation 100 reported that police located a man with a single gunshot wound to the leg in the parking lot of the Lawrence Community Building, 115 W. 11th St., located near Brothers Bar & Grill. At least one vehicle was also damaged by gunfire.

Police did not release the identity of the gunshot victim on Saturday.

Fristoe, meanwhile, remains in jail without bond.

Alexander L. Pendleton, of Texas, was found guilty of aggravated battery by a jury in November. Pendleton was arrested on May 17 after Lawrence police responded to a disturbance at Brothers Bar and Grill, 1105 Massachusetts St. After a nearly three-day trial, a jury found Pendleton guilty of aggravated battery for his role in sending a 24-year-old Dallas man to an area trauma center. Robert Trigg Edwards received significant facial injuries after being knocked to the ground and beaten in the face.
