A man involved in a fight outside a Lakewood bar told police he was upset because he recently broke up with his girlfriend. The other man in the fight – the man who was later shot by police – was not the man upset because of a breakup. A story and headline that appeared on Page B2 Friday was incorrect. The shot man remains in the intensive care unit at a Seattle hospital.
