Updated at 8:20 a.m. Monday

An altercation at a trendy Northern Liberties bar turned deadly early Monday morning when it escalated into gunfire, police said.

Just after midnight, cops said, they received reports of a shooting on Hancock Street near Germantown Avenue, on the edge of the courtyard at the Piazza at Schmidt's.

A 25-year-old man was shot at least three times in his neck and chest, according to investigators. He was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital, where he was initially resuscitated, but doctors were unable to save him. He was pronounced dead at 2:40 a.m.

He was identified hours later as Maurice Kimble, 25, of Upper Darby.

Police also towed away a silver Mercedes Benz that reportedly belonged to Kimble.

Investigators believe an altercation between two men began on the patio outside PYT, a bar and restaurant at the Piazza, then spilled onto the edge of the courtyard, where gunfire erupted.

At least four spent shell casings, a bullet fragment and a pool of blood marked the pavement between two of the Piazza’s buildings along Hancock Street as crime-scene investigators and detectives worked at the scene. Police also found a discarded revolver near the scene and were investigating whether it was used in the shooting, they said.

Initial reports of a possible second victim of the shooting proved to be unfounded.

Police said they were working on obtaining surveillance video from the bar to see if it captured the altercation or the shooting.

A man who identified himself as a Piazza employee twice told journalists standing on Hancock Street to step back, saying that Hancock was a private street, only to be told by Philadelphia Police on both occasions that the street is public and the journalists were not interfering with the investigation.

Cops remained at the scene investigating until daylight.

This is what you get when you try and build an
upscale restaurant, bar, housing complex in a
shithole neighborhood. Should have left it to the
trash that lives around it.

I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that Earth didn't lose anyone worth keeping in the shooting.

Hipsters are known to kill people with their words and if that doesn't work they have a dub step contest.

Yup. They buy into these neighborhoods cause it's cheap
and they figure they're gonna make a killing. Instead, they
instigate killings. Assholes.

I've actually felt pretty safe in the Northern Liberties/Fishtown area.
It wasn't as if someone blindly went gunning in there either, it screams nig on nig.

I used to work at 5th and Master. I always wanted to get out of
there as soon as my shift was over. Never felt safe there.
