Two women fought last night at Montview Bar and Grill, according to Aurora Police Department Spokesman Bob Friel. One of the women left the bar around 1 a.m. and got into a truck with two men. Another man followed them out and started shooting. All three of the people in the car were injured, but were able to drive to a hospital. One of the men died there.

The gunman fled the scene, and Aurora police are still looking for him. Friel says the police are unsure of the shooter's involvement in the initial fight.

No names or additional information has been released at this point.
