The moment a gunman opens fire at Philadelphia nightclub (VIDEO)

A gunman opened fire and injured two people at a Philadelphia nightclub March 31 after being told he wasn’t allowed to enter.

Around 3:30 a.m. the suspect wanted to enter Candela’s Bar & Restaurant, but was denied entry. Angered, he hurled a grate through the window and left. He returned several minutes and fired four shots into the club, hitting a security guard in his left cheek and a female patron in the back of the head, HLNTV reports.

The security guard was transported to Einstein Hospital where he was listed in critical condition. The female victim suffered only minor injuries and was released from the hospital.

Police responded less than 15 minutes after the shooting occurred, but the suspect had already fled and remains at large.
