KENT, Wash. (AP) - Kent police report a 22-year-old Ellensburg man was arrested following the fatal shooting of a man in a fight outside a bar early today.

Police say a 24-year-old Kent man died en route to Seattle's Harborview Medical Center.

They say they received a call about the shooting near the Pony Keg Grill & Bar at 1:45 a.m. today. They say a fight inside the bar spilled into the parking lot and one man pulled out a gun and shot the other.

Police say when they arrived at the scene, they found another person had been physically assaulted. The victim of the assault was taken to Valley Medical Center in Renton with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the Ellensburg man turned himself in this afternoon and was jailed at the City of Kent Correctional Facility.
