PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police say four people have been wounded, one critically, outside a bar in the city’s Mount Airy section.

The incident happened about 2:15 a.m. Friday outside the 7165 Restaurant & Bar.

Police say one man began shooting when an altercation inside spilled outside. Three men were wounded, as was a female bartender who was trying to quell the disturbance.

Police weren’t immediately sure whether the wounded men were involved in the altercation or hit by stray bullets. Police have yet to find the shooter.

Two men in their 20s drove to a hospital, one with a hand wound, the other with wounds to a torso and leg. The bartender was also shot in the leg. They’re all stable.

Police say the critically injured man was found in a car that crashed a short distance away.
