A gunfight at a strip club has left a 42-year-old man dead, San Diego police said Monday.

Police were called Sunday night to Ten's Show Club in the North Park neighborhood with a report that two men had pulled guns and begun firing when told to leave the establishment.

The two were among four men who were being ejected for rowdiness when the gunfire began, police said. The 42-year-old man was found in an adjacent parking lot and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead from the gunshot wounds.

One of the four men was arrested on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly smashing a patron with a beer glass before the shooting began, police said.
