A barroom brawl early Saturday morning ended with one man shot in the arm, another in the foot and a third on the run, police said.

The shootout took place outside the 1252 Bar at 1252 South 21st Street in the Point Breeze section of the city. It began when one of the suspects allegedly grabbed a female patron, and another male patron intervened on her behalf.

He and two suspects went outside the bar.

There, police say, Kevin Vancliff of the 5800 block of Springfield Avenue pulled a gun and shot the victim in the arm. The two struggled over Vancliff's gun, which discharged again, this time hitting Vancliff in the foot.

A third man pulled a gun and was about to shoot the victim again when two bicycle patrolmen, hearing the gunshots, arrived on the scene. Police fired once at the third man, who ran away. Authorities said there was no sign he had been hit.

Vancliff was arrested at the scene.
