Police are investigating a shooting early Sunday morning in the parking lot of the Wyndham Jacksonville Riverwalk on Prudential Drive. 

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said patrol officers responded about 5 a.m. Sunday to the 1600 block of Prudential Drive.  When officers arrived, they found an adult man shot. 

Police said Jacksonville Fire Rescue transported the victim to a nearby hospital, were the medical staff said the man's injuries are not life-threatening.   His name was not released.

Police say a witness told them the shooting occurred when the party was ending, and many of the patrons were in the parking lot leaving.

Officials say in their preliminary investigation, they have learned of "after hour parties" taking place at small buildings near the hotel complex. 

Investigators say they were searching for evidence, witnesses and hope to speak with the victim soon.
