SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA. - One man is dead and another in the hospital after a shootout in front of a South Sacramento bar Sunday around 1:20 a.m.

Sacramento County sheriff's deputies responded to the Warners Rendezvous Lounge, in the 7100 block of Governors Circle, after calls came in of multiple shots fired, said Deputy Jason Ramos.

When police arrived at the scene, they found a man with a gunshot wound to the head. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Later, another man was admitted to the hospital with non-life threatening gunshot wounds.
