Two people are killed and eight were hurt after a shooting at a nightclub in Greenville, South Carolina on Sunday, according to officials.
The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said the shooting happened just before 2 a.m. at the Lavish Lounge, located about 5 miles southwest of downtown Greenville, in South Carolina’s Upstate region.
“It’s a terrible situation to be quite honest,” Sheriff Hobart Lewis said at a press conference.
Lewis said he was unsure why the club was open given the state’s coronavirus restrictions.
Victims were taken to nearby hospitals.
Investigators are looking to identify two potential suspects.
