BOSTON (Reuters) - An 18-year-old man opened fire in a Massachusetts'
gay bar and attacked patrons with a hatchet, wounding three people,
police said on Thursday.

The attack at Puzzles Lounge in New Bedford, a city about 58 miles south
of Boston, took place around midnight on Wednesday and was being treated
as an apparent hate crime.

Police said the man entered the bar, ordered a drink and asked the
bartender if he was in a gay bar. When told that it was, he reached into
his coat and pulled out a hatchet and attacked the man next to him.

As patrons attempted to restrain him, he drew a gun and fired several
shots, wounding two people, police said.
