KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - Police say a 23-year-old man has been fatally shot at a Kalamazoo sports bar.

Kalamazoo Public Safety says officers responded about 1:30 a.m. Thursday to Wayside West after reports of several shots fired inside. Officers found the Kalamazoo man unresponsive. Police say he was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Police say witnesses gave a description of the suspected shooter, who was arrested shortly afterward. Police say the man, also a 23-year-old from Kalamazoo, was arrested and is expected to be charged with open murder.

John Bolenbaugh, who was standing near the man who was shot, tells our media partner WWMT-TV that the shooter was "unloading the entire weapon" in the bar. Ali Alsakha tells the TV station there were dozens of people who ran from the bar following the shooting.
