WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - One person is dead and another is in the hospital after a late-night shooting near a Worcester bar.

Police responding to reports of gunshots at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday were flagged down by a group of people in front of Gallagher’s Pub.

There they found a 21-year-old man on the ground suffering from gunshot wounds to his legs, abdomen, and neck. After life-saving efforts at the scene, he was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

While treating the first victim, police located a 20-year-old man nearby suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. He was hospitalized for non-life threatening injuries.

The victims’ names were not released.

No arrests were announced and the investigation is ongoing.
