MANILA -- Police said an 18-year-old Norwegian tourist was fatally shot outside a bar in a suburb of Manila when he tried to stop a fight.

Police said Mikael Troy Johansen Rasay had left the bar with friends early Sunday when he saw a commotion across the street and tried to intervene in a fight between a man and a woman.

Chief Inspector Rodelio Marcelo of Quezon City said Tuesday that Rasay knocked the man down in a fistfight. Gunfire rang out moments later and witnesses reported seeing another man chasing and shooting Rasay.

Marcelo said the suspect escaped in a car. Rasay died of wounds after being brought to a hospital and another person was wounded by a stray bullet.

Police said they are investigating. (AP)
