An early-morning bar fight escalates into a shootout in Philadelphia's Mayfair section.

It happened just after 2AM near Calloway's Bar on Cottman Avenue. Police say two men got into an argument at the bar. The fight got heated, and led to the two men punching each other inside. The fight made its way outside the bar. That's when one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the other man in the leg.
