Colorado Springs police have arrested a man in Saturday's shooting of a Fort Carson soldier.

Clifford Parker, 25, was arrested in the wounding of the soldier, which occurred about 1:30 a.m. Saturday outside The Thirsty Parrot, 32 S. Tejon St.

As people were leaving downtown bars, three soldiers argued and one fired a handgun in a nearby alley, police said.

One man was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police did not list an official charge for Parker on the blotter.
