DAYTON (AP) — Authorities say one man has died after an early morning shootout inside a nightclub near Dayton in southwest Ohio.

The Montgomery County sheriff’s office says deputies responded at 2 a.m. EST Sunday to a report of a person being shot at the K9 Club in Jefferson Township. They say they learned that several people pulled out handguns and opened fire at each other across the crowded club.

A 67-year-old man was wounded and then was pronounced dead at Miami Valley Hospital. Authorities didn’t say immediately whether he participated in the gunfire. No other injuries were reported immediately.

Police say a car chase followed the shooting, with people in vehicles exchanging gunfire in Dayton.

Homicide detectives are asking for help in identifying and locating the suspects.
