A bar fight in Fairfield late Wednesday turned into a shooting that left one man dead and another seriously injured, police said.

Police responded to a large fight outside a bar in the 600 block of Parker Road at around 8:45 p.m. and while they were on their way the call was upgraded to shots fired.

Police found two shooting victims with gunshot wounds to the head, a 31-year-old Fairfield man and a 29-year-old Suisun City man.

The 31-year-old was taken to a local hospital and is in serious but stable condition. The 29-year-old was pronounced dead outside the bar.
