APPLETON, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a police officer fatally shot a male who had a gun at a bar in downtown Appleton.

Appleton Police Chief Todd Thomas said at a brief news conference that one male threatened another with a gun and fired at least once early Sunday at Jack’s Apple Pub. Then the second male wrestled with the gunman as the crowd fled.

Thomas says Lt. Jay Steinke went in and saw the male with a gun, then fired. The subject died at a hospital. His name has not been released.

Two men inside the bar were also taken to the hospital, one with a gunshot wound in his arm and the second with a shoulder injury not from gunfire. No officers were hurt.

Green Bay police are investigating.
