PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities say a Temple University student on the main campus in North Philadelphia was grazed by a bullet apparently fired in a shootout at a nearby bar.

Police say the shooting began at about 2 a.m. Sunday outside a nightclub on Cecil B Moore Avenue.

An unidentified 21-year-old Temple student who was about a block away was struck in the stomach by a stray bullet. He was taken to an area hospital and released.

Police say one of the gunmen, a 25-year-old man, was struck in the knee. He was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where he is currently in stable condition.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is continuing.
