Raymondville police confirmed one person is dead following a shooting at a bar.

The shooting happened at around 1 a.m. on Wednesday at Linda's Lounge, located off Hidalgo Avenue and Business 77.

Raymondville Police Chief Uvalde Zamora said officers responded to the scene and found two individuals — 47-year-old José Luis Martínez Jr. and 35-year-old Guadalupe Ramírez — lying on the floor with bullet wounds.

Ramirez died due to his injuries at the hospital, Zamora said.

Martinez was hospitalized, Zamora added.

"We learned that one weapon was recovered and we believe there's another weapon out there that we are still looking for," Zamora said. "We made that determination after we found several other casings from another gun that did not belong to the gun that was recovered."

Police say Martinez is claiming self-defense.

Autopsy results for Ramirez are pending.
