PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh police were looking for a suspect and four security workers at a city bar, who fled the scene after a city man was fatally shot and four other customers wounded.

Police identified the dead man as 27-year-old Vincent Edward Holt Jr.

Police say the shooting occurred about 1:20 a.m. at the Rendezvous Phase III bar.

Three other men, all in their 20s, were taken to UPMC Presbyterian hospital for wounds. They are from the nearby suburbs of Penn Hills, Swissvale and Wilkinsburg. A fifth victim, a 22-year-old from Penn Hills, walked into West Penn Hospital and was treated for a wound to his arm.

Police say four security guards fled the scene. Police were trying to find them and the shooter.

The bartender tells police he ducked when the shots rang out.
