PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities say a dispute at an after-hours club in Philadelphia ended with two security guards being shot and wounded.

Four men who were involved in a fight inside the club around 5 a.m. Saturday were escorted out by security guards who walked the men to their vehicles. One of the men soon pulled out a gun and started firing, while one guard also fired several shots.

Authorities say a 28-year-old guard was shot in the left arm, while a 27-year-old guard was hit in the left leg. Both were being treated at a hospital, and their injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The younger guard reportedly fired 12 shots, but it’s not known if anyone was hit.

The four men fled the scene and remain at large.
