A man was said to be “conscious and alert” after being shot in what officials say might have been a gang-related altercation at a Village Inn in Mesa.

Police would not immediately say whether the shooting took place inside or outside the family restaurant.

It happened across the street from Mesa Community College, at Dobson Road and Southern Avenue, just before noon Wednesday. 

Detective Nik Rasheta, a Mesa Police Department spokesman, said a gang task force was assisting in the investigation.
