Three people are dead and eight others injured after a late-night shooting at a bar in Youngstown, Ohio, multiple new outlets reported Sunday. 

Authorities said that they believe the shooting at the Torch Club Bar & Grill stemmed from an argument, according to WKBN-TV, but details regarding a suspect and motive were not released.

Those who were wounded were taken to a nearby hospital, CNN reported. 


Police reportedly found shell casings in the bar's parking lot and on neighboring streets. A nearby house was also hit by a bullet. 

Authorities also said that two car accidents occurred near the bar shortly after the shooting. One of the shooting victims was involved in a two-car accident and died from his injuries.  It is unclear if a four-vehicle accident stemmed from the shooting. 

The Hill has reached out to police in Youngstown for more information about the shooting.
