YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A man is dead and another was hurt after a shooting on Youngstown’s south side overnight.

It happened around 2:15 a.m. Tuesday in front of Savo Bar and Grille in the 2800 block of South Ave.

According to a news release from the police department, police found a 30-year-old man dead and a 26-year-old man hurt in the parking lot. The bar’s owner disputes that it happened in the parking lot and that the shots were fired from the street. Police have not released their identities.

“It was closing time at the bar here,” Capt. Rod Foley said. “There were some shots heard outside. The officer that was actually working here came outside and found two victims here.”

The person who was hurt is being treated at the hospital.

Police said the shooting wasn’t related to anything happening inside the bar.

No one has been arrested.

Police will still be investigating at the scene Tuesday morning, as well as looking for any damage to Savo Bar and Grille.
