A bar fight turned deadly in Antioch early this morning, Antioch police said. Police received a call at 1:36 a.m. that a shooting had occurred at Cruisers Saloon at 1611 A St. Apparently a group of men who had been kicked out of the bar earlier in the night returned to the bar to start a fight, police said.
A fight ensued inside the bar and then moved just outside the front door. One of the men who had been kicked out earlier then pulled out a handgun and fired at least one shot inside the bar, police said. A 38-year-old man at the bar was hit and died at the scene, police said. The homicide is under investigation, police said.
