BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Police say a gunfight left three people wounded outside a bar and restaurant in coastal Brunswick.

Media outlets report the shootout happened at about 2 a.m. Saturday when a fight at the Blue Bay, a bar and grill at a local mall, led to gunfire in the parking lot.

Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering (DORE-ing) says at least three handguns and one semi-automatic rifle were fired during the shootout. He says one of the three people wounded suffered serious injuries and was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Savannah, about 70 miles away.

Doering said investigators are working to identify suspects. No arrests were immediately reported.
