PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police say a suspect is in custody in a shooting death outside a popular bar and restaurant near the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

Officials said the two men got into a fight in the Copabanana restaurant in the University City section of west Philadelphia shortly before 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Authorities say the dispute moved outside the club, and the 31-year-old victim was shot multiple times. He was rushed to the University of Pennsylvania, where he was pronounced dead.

A University of Pennsylvania security guard nearby heard gunshots and called police, and university guards pursued a 26-year-old suspect and arrested him nearby.

Police said there were about two dozen people in the bar at the time, but none were university students.
