Sheriff’s officials say a shooting at a South Carolina nightclub left two people dead and eight others wounded over the weekend.
No one was immediately taken into custody following the early Sunday incident at Lavish Lounge.
However, a Greenville County sheriff’s representative says they are looking for two people.
Authorities had originally said that 12 people were hurt, but later clarified that two victims were likely counted twice initially.
Of the eight individuals who were wounded, some reportedly have non-life-threatening injuries, while others are in critical condition.
A Facebook post from the club says Foogiano was scheduled to perform there Saturday night.
The nightclub was hosting a “very, very, very, large crowd” for the concert when the shooting erupted, Greenville County Sheriff Hobart Lewis says.
“There’s a lot of shell casings inside,” Lewis explains. “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.”
South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster has declined to ease or lift restrictions on large group gatherings until the state has the COVID-19 pandemic under control there.
Investigators are now looking into whether concert organizers had been granted an exception, Lewis told a reporter.
Early Sunday, the nightclub posted a message to its social media accounts: “Due to the outcome of (tonight’s) event all future events have been postponed until further notice. We will update you as time progresses!!” It did not elaborate.
The rapper is safe, according to a representative.
This is a developing story.
