HARVEY, Ill. — Police are investigating a shooting that killed a man outside a bar in Harvey.

The shooting happened around 3 a.m. Monday outside the “Let’s Play Sports Bar” on Dixie Highway. The bar is just down the street from the Harvey police station.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office identifies the victim as Larry Matthews, 27.

Police said there were multiple shooters and some shots were fired by club security. The Harvey Police Chief is not saying if any suspects have been identified.
