Sunday an unidentified man in his twenties was shot in the butt during the Calle Ocho Festival in Little Havana, according to Miami Police.

The shooting occurred around 4 p.m. on SW Eighth Street and 11th Avenue when two men reportedly got into a fight.

Not realizing he'd been shot, the victim walked for blocks before collapsing in the crowd of thousands, WSVN reports. Watch the video above.

He's in stable condition, suffering a gunshot wound in his left buttocks, according to the Miami Herald.

The shooter has not been identified.

"We’re asking any and all persons here out of the thousands of people that are here on 8th Street," police spokesman Sgt. Freddie Cruz told NBC 6, "if someone saw something, please come forward and help our investigators with this puzzle of an investigation so we can capture the person or persons responsible for this crime."

This is a developing story.
