CHESTER, Pa. (CBS/AP) — Authorities say an early morning shooting outside a bar in Chester, Delaware County led to an exchange of gunfire with police and sent three people to the hospital.

Officials say an argument began outside the Gold Room Bar in the 500 block of Edgmont Avenue at about 2:40 a.m. Sunday, and one man pulled a gun and shot another man.

Arriving police said two suspects got into an SUV and started firing at officers. Police returned fire, hitting the vehicle several times. The SUV fled but crashed several blocks away.
