HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Huntington police say a man who was kicked out of a bar returned with a gun and began shooting before he was fatally shot by an employee.

During the exchange of gunfire early Friday, three people suffered gunshot wounds. They were hospitalized.

The shooting at Shoop's Bar followed the gunman's altercation with a woman, getting him tossed from the establishment.

Police said a bar worker had a concealed weapon and returned the gunman's fire, killing him. The worker is being questioned.

Police said the three injured by gunfire do not have life-threatening injuries.
