GREENVILLE CO., S.C. (WSPA) – Greenville County leaders are hoping to shut down a nightclub after a shooting there left two people dead and eight others injured.
The shooting happened early Sunday morning during a concert at Lavish Lounge on White Horse Road.
“This is a horrific situation. It’s a tragic event,” Greenville County Sheriff Hobart Lewis said. “10 families have been affected right here in the Upstate, and it’s a horrible tagline to put on a place like Greenville.”
“We cannot have this type of activity going on anywhere–not just in district 25–anywhere in Greenville County,” Greenville County Councilman Ennis Fant added.
According to investigators, multiple people fired shots on and near the stage inside the club.
Now, investigators are looking for four persons of interest.
Sheriff Lewis said no guns should have been inside the club....
