PHOENIX — Two men are dead after a shooting took place at a Phoenix bar early Sunday, authorities said.
Officers responded to reports of a shooting call around 1:30 a.m. near 48th Street and McDowell Road and found a security guard, Jordan Davis, 34, with a gunshot wound in the parking lot, the Phoenix Police Department said in a press release.
Davis was a security guard who allegedly denied Daniel Stuart, 34, entry into the establishment, which led to a physical altercation where Davis was believed to be shot by Stuart, authorities said.
A third person, identified as another security guard at the establishment, allegedly returned fire with Davis at Stuart, according to police.
Stuart was able to leave the scene before arriving at a hospital later in the morning with gunshot wounds where he later died.
Police detained the third security guard and said he is cooperating with authorities.
The investigation remains ongoing.
No additional information was available.
