KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Police have identified the victim of a shooting that took place outside a North Knoxville bar over the weekend.

Officers say Ryan Kelley, 34, was shot more than once after getting into an argument with two unknown men early Saturday morning near Toot's Little Honky Tonk, a karaoke bar just off of Central Avenue.

On Monday, Kelley was in stable condition at University of Tennessee Medical Center.

According to a preliminary investigation, Kelley admitted to having eight beers in the bar and having a confrontation with two males outside the bar. 

He was shot more than once and was transported to UT for treatment of what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.
