SANDUSKY, Ohio — Police say an apparent altercation inside an Ohio bar spilled outside and led to an exchange of gunfire that left five people shot and wounded.

Police say evidence shows more than 70 shots were fired in the confrontation shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday at a bar in Sandusky, about 45 miles east of Toledo.

Sandusky police say one wounded person was flown to a hospital. Investigators haven’t publicly identified the injured or shared details about their conditions.

Police Chief John Orzech tells the Sandusky Register that officers believe the altercation involved residents of Sandusky and Toledo. Orzech says several firearms were found at the scene.

So far, there has been no word of any charges related to the shooting.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
