A fight in a parking lot escalated into a shooting that left one man in critical condition Saturday night.

Authorities were dispatched to 1601 North Zarzamora St just before 7 p.m. Saturday when they found a man in his 40's with one gunshot wound to the head. Witnesses said two men were fighting with crowbars in a convenience store parking lot when the victim ran. Police said the suspect fired one shot to his head and fled the scene in a dark vehicle. The man is at University Hospital in critical condition, police said.

Officials said there are no suspects, but they are working with three witnesses to find leads. Surveillance video is also available.

It is too early to tell if the shooting is gang-related, but the victim does appear to know the shooter, police said.
