Man Killed, 6 Hurt in Shooting at Illegal Bar in Pennsylvania

Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania say a Maryland man is dead after a weekend shooting at an illegal bar that also injured six people.

Reading police say 28-year-old Richard Gonzalez, of Prince George's County, was killed around 3:30 a.m. Sunday in what investigators are calling a speakeasy.

Berks County District Attorney John Adams says about 100 people were in the bar. He says multiple shooters fired 25 to 30 shots.

Investigators say the speakeasy operated out of a row house in northwest Reading, about 50 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

Police say the bar was a nuisance that had been shut down before.
