PHOENIX -- Two private security officers have been detained by Phoenix police after a shooting outside a bar that left one man wounded.

Police said a fight between a patron and a guard precipitated the shooting about 2 a.m. Monday outside the Funny Farm bar near 4rd Avenue and Thomas Road.

A 37-year-old man intervened to try to defuse the situation and was shot by a security guard.

The man was shot in his upper body and transported to a hospital in critical but stable condition. He was expected to survive.

The security guard who fired the shot left the scene but returned when police called him back for questioning.

No arrest has been made.
