EVERETT, Mass. (AP) — Authorities are investigating a fatal shooting outside a Massachusetts hookah lounge and bar.

The Middlesex District Attorney's Office says a 47-year-old man from Everett was shot early Saturday morning outside the Karma Lounge on Ferry Street in Everett. Authorities say the man was leaving the establishment with a woman when a physical altercation occurred between the couple and several other individuals. Multiple shots were fired and the man was struck.

While good Samaritans at the scene tried to intervene and provide first aid, police say the victim was later pronounced dead after being transported to Massachusetts General Hospital. His name has not yet been released.

The DA's office and the Everett Police are still investigating case. No arrests have been made.
