A spearfishing expedition ends with a possible shark bite tweeted Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Friday afternoon.

PBCFR responded to Love Street near the Square Grouper bar in Jupiter to treat the bitten diver.

Crews say the male victim reported being bitten on the hand by a shark. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The diving company, called Shark Addicts, tells CBS12 that the shark bite happened 60 miles away from South Florida, in the Bahamas.

CBS12 has a crew heading to the scene and will update this story with more information.
