STRAWBERRY MANSION (WPVI) -- An argument between several people inside a Strawberry Mansion bar ended with three people shot.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Saturday outside the Ridge Capitol Bar and Grill on the 2800 block of Ridge Avenue.

Police say security guards fired more than a dozen shots during the incident.

A 26-year-old woman was shot in the back as she was running down the street. She was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle.

A second victim, 24-year-old man, was shot repeatedly and found with a gun nearby.

Three other bullet shell casings came from that gun, according to police.

Both victims are listed in critical condition at Temple University Hospital.

A 32-year-old man suffered a grazed wound to his head.

According to reports, three suspects were seen getting into a dark-colored vehicle, possibly a BMW.

They drove by the armed security guards and rolled down their windows, and armed security fired at the vehicle.

That vehicle was last seen heading northbound on Sedgley Avenue.

Investigators are trying to sort out exactly what happened.
