CATONSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland are investigating the death of a sports bar patron who was shot by a security guard.

Baltimore County police said the shooting took place about 2 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot outside Loafers Sports Bar and Grill.

The Baltimore Sun reports that security guards had asked patrons to leave the lot because the business was closed. Police said that after being asked several times to leave, one man went to his car and retrieved a handgun.

Police said the man raised the gun in the direction of one of the guards, who fired his handgun. The man was struck by a bullet and was pronounced dead at a hospital. He was identified as 34-year-old Ron Worsley.

Police did not identify the guard, citing the ongoing investigation.
