A shooting at a skating rink late Sunday night led to Metro Police serving a search warrant and examining the Rolls Royce belonging to boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Monday after the car was involved in the shooting.

Metro officers went to the Crystal Palace Skating Center, 4680 Boulder Highway, about 10:06 p.m. Sunday to check on reports of shots fired.

A shouting match had occurred between two people inside the skating rink and as one patron left the area, along with another person, about seven shots were fired, police said.

The driver and passenger inside Mayweather's Rolls Royce were uninjured, police said, although the car was hit by bullets.

Mayweather is not a suspect in the investigation, police said.

The man who fired shots into the vehicle goes by "O.C.," and is a known associate of Floyd Mayweather Promotions, police said. He is about 6-feet tall and weighs about 220 pounds with brown eyes and black, shoulder-length hair worn in dreadlocks, police said.

As part of an ongoing investigation into the shooting, police served a search warrant early Monday at Mayweather's Las Vegas home and the boxer is cooperating with Metro officers and detectives.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555, or the Metro Police Violent Crimes Section at (702) 828-5634.

Mayweather will fight Juan Manuel Marquez on Sept. 19 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on an HBO pay-per-view.
