Authorities say five people were arrested after a brawl and shooting at a wedding reception in Southeast Texas.

Beaumont police say up to 30 people were involved in a fight Saturday night, and one person was shot in the hand.

Police say the victim of the shooting didn't want to press charges, but the shooting suspect was arrested on an outstanding arrest warrant. Others involved in the dispute also had outstanding warrants, and police say some were in possession of marijuana.

The Beaumont Enterprise reported Monday that the bride and groom were not among those sent to jail. There were reports of other minor injuries.

Names of the suspects weren't immediately released.
