Street shooting near bar leaves 10 wounded; motive unknown

Pennsylvania

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) – Authorities say a street shooting in eastern Pennsylvania has left 10 people wounded.

The shooting outside the Deja Vu nightclub in Allentown occurred shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday. Authorities say most of the victims had just left the nightclub or were standing on the sidewalk outside when the shots rang out.

Witnesses said they saw several panicked people fleeing the scene on foot, and at least one car was spotted speeding away.

Authorities say all of the wounded people were being treated at hospitals and were expected to recover from their injuries. But their names and further details on the shooting were not immediately disclosed.

Authorities quickly cordoned off the area for several hours as they investigated the incident. They say a possible motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
