Man shot outside bar, suspects exchange fire with police

Posted: Updated:

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say an early morning shooting outside a bar in a violence-plagued city near Philadelphia led to an exchange of gunfire with police and sent three people to the hospital.

Officials in Delaware County say an argument began outside the Gold Room Bar in Chester at about 2:40 a.m. Sunday, and one man pulled a gun and shot another man.

Arriving police said two suspects got into a sport utility vehicle and started firing at officers. Police returned fire, hitting the vehicle several times. The SUV fled but crashed several blocks away.

Police said both men inside the vehicle had gunshot wounds. They and the man shot outside the bar were taken to Crozer-Chester Medical Center, where their conditions weren't immediately reported.

The Delaware County district attorney's office is investigating.
