LORAIN, Ohio - Police have released more information about a Lorain gas station incident including what may have led up to a fatal shooting.
According to authorities, a confrontation at the Cotton Club on East 28th Street around 3 a.m. prompted a club worker to call police about unwanted men, some with guns, at the property.
When officers arrived, they weren't able to identify a problem. Police officers near the bar then heard gunshots and responded to a nearby scene where they confirmed shots were fired, no one was injured, but the suspects took off in a black SUV.
Minutes later, police were dispatched to Liberty Gas Station for a shots fired call. There, police found four people shot, one fatally.
Herman Seagers, 33, was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival. Three others, Tallis Moore, 33, Allen Tate Sr., 34, and Damian Bell, 25, were all taken to a nearby hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Lorain police continue to investigate the shooting and look for a suspect. Police have not said if the Cotton Club shooting and one nearby were related to the fatal gas station shooting.
