Daytona Beach Police are investigating a shooting outside a bar that left one man dead early Sunday morning. A report on the Police Department website says 27-year old Cory Kiser was pronounced dead at Halifax Hospital Sunday morning. Kiser had been treated and transported to Halifax Hospital after Daytona Beach police officers found him lying outside the Circus Bar on Mason Avenue with “…what appeared to be several gunshot wounds.” Police had been called to the area at 1:36 Sunday morning due to reports of shots being fired outside of the saloon.

Two others shot also

Daytona Beach Police say Kiser had been “…shot numerous times…” with an unknown weapon. Another person, 33-year old Melissa S. Gonzalez, suffered a non-life threatening wound after being shot in the hand. Another man also showed up later at Halifax Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. Police say the wound to 34-year old Bobby W. Candid was also non-life threatening.
