Man fatally shot outside Boulder restaurant after argument

BOULDER, Colo. -- One person was shot and killed at a restaurant on the busy Pearl Street Mall early Monday morning, the Boulder Police Department said.

The shooting happened at the Bramble and Hare restaurant at 1970 13th St. just after midnight.

Police said an argument between two people started inside the restaurant then went outside where shots were fired.

The two then went back inside the restaurant where more shots might have been fired, police said.

The victim, an adult male, was taken to Boulder Community Health where he died from his injuries. His identification will be released later by the Boulder County Coroner's Office.

Witnesses said a chef at the restaurant wrestled the shooter to the ground and detained him until police arrived. The suspect, who was not identified, was taken into custody.

The shooting comes as thousands of people descend on Boulder for the annual Bolder Boulder road race. Many people were on the mall on Sunday night ahead of the race.
