Two dead, 8 injured in shooting at South Carolina club

Greenville, S.C.: Two people were killed and eight others were wounded in a suspected gang-related shooting at club in Greenville, S.C., early Sunday.

The shooting occurred around 2 a.m. at Lavish Lounge, according to the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Hobart Lewis said the incident was “probably gang related.”

“It’s sad to see on any day,” he said at an early morning press conference.

Investigators are seeking two suspects but do not have descriptions to release, Lt. Jimmy Bolt said.

All victims are being treated at Greenville Memorial Hospital, with conditions that range from minor to critical, Bolt said.

A sheriff’s deputy heard gunfire from the club and he called for backup, Bolt said.

“There’s a lot of shell casings inside,” Lewis said at a news conference. “Everything is turned over. There are a few chairs in there, food on the floor, some bottles busted. You can tell somebody left in a hurry. There are some pretty large amounts of blood.”

Lewis said a “very, very large crowd” was gathered for a concert at the club.

Night clubs are not allowed to be open under Gov. Henry McMasters executive order regarding the coronavirus pandemic. Lewis said they are looking to see if the club had been granted an exception.
