The Action Cam was at the scene outside the Family Tavern on the 1100 block of Luzerne Street.

Police say a fight broke out inside the bar at 2:30 a.m. and then spilled out onto the street. That is where a man was shot.

The victim was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The corrections officer was being questioned by police, but no charges have been filed. His name was not disclosed.
