ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The security guard accused of killing a man at a club in Allentown could be released from jail.

At a hearing Thursday, a judge set bail for Andrew Gesslein at $150,000. He was originally committed to the Lehigh County Prison without bail.

Gesslein, of Tilden Twp., Berks Co., is charged with voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of Michael Randolph on Apr. 29.

It happened at the North End Republican Club, where Gesslein was working security, police said.

Gesslein claims he acted in self-defense.
