One man is dead and another is injured after a shooting in south suburban Blue Island early Monday.

Michael Goldsmith, 27, of Blue Island, was taken to Christ Hospital and later died, the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said. A second man was taken to Metro South Hospital in Blue Island.

The shooting took place around 1 a.m. at the Premium 127 Bar and Grill at 1859 W. 127th St.

According to bar security, there was a fight, and they kicked a few people out of the bar. Not long after, shots began to ring out.

"It all started with a fight and someone came back and started shooting," said worker Booker Culpz.

DJ Chip was working inside and says about 200 people were inside during the commotion.

"Gunshots, I'm packing up my equipment and all of a sudden they started shooting in the club," said the DJ.

Security apparently kicked some people out after the fight and the shooting happened outside with some of the bullets hitting the inside of the bar.

Investigators taped off a perimeter down the block from the bar where the shooting extended. Goldsmith collapsed at the end of the block.
