A few hours later — Fulford says police were called out to the Sports Bar on the 1800 block of Selma Avenue following a shooting there early Saturday morning.

“Around 1:30 am officers responded in reference to a gunshot victim,” Fulford said.

“Upon officer arrival the victim was deceased from his injuries.”
