WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a man awaiting trial in suburban Philadelphia on drug charges is now being sought in a shooting in a central Pennsylvania bar that killed one person and wounded two others.

Police in Lycoming County say about 50 people were in the Fifth Avenue Tavern in Williamsport at about 1 a.m. Saturday when a 39-year-old man pulled a handgun during a fight with another man and opened fire.

Authorities said 29-year-old Yusef Wilson was hit in the upper body and died at Williamsport Regional Medical Center a short time later. Police said at least four more shots were fired, wounding two bystanders.

The (Williamsport) Sun-Gazette reports that officials say the gunfire was captured on surveillance video and at least three people identified a suspect.
