Akron Police are investigating a shooting on the city's east side.
Shortly before 6:00am Tuesday morning, officers were called to Massillon Road where 25-year old Antony Pruett of Barberton was struck by a bullet in the leg after a fistfight in the parking lot with a friend over the keys to his car.
Pruett told police he was trying to get his friends car keys to prevent him from driving while intoxicated.

His injuries do not appear to be life threatening.
