DENVER (AP) -- Two people have been hospitalized after someone fired into a crowd near a Denver nightclub early Sunday and Denver police and a security guard returned fire.
Authorities say the dispute began outside an apartment complex. Denver police say a guard at the apartment complex used pepper spray to break them up.
The guard summoned two off-duty Denver police officers working at a nearby nightclub. About that time, two men returned to the scene, and one started firing. An officer and the security guard shot back at the men.
Bars were letting out at the time, and there were a number of people in the area, according to the Denver Post. No bystanders were hurt.
The victims, who have not been identified, are expected to survive.
