TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Police say a man has died after allegedly shooting at a crowd of patrons and security officers in the parking lot of a bar in northwest Ohio.

The Blade reports (http://bit.ly/11Hkwr5 ) the man was leaving the bar in South Toledo early Sunday morning and was shot at least three times in an exchange of gunfire. He later died at the University of Toledo Medical Center.

Police told the newspaper one of the bar’s security officers was shot twice, but his wounds are not life-threatening.

Authorities say no one else appeared injured, despite multiple shots being fired into the crowd.
