Two dead in U.S. nightclub shooting

According to the Greenville County Sheriff's Office, no one is now in custody and police are actively investigating.

A statement from the Greenville County Sheriff's Office says a deputy noticed a "disturbance" at Lavish Lounge just before 2 a.m. Sunday, and called for backup because of "active gunfire from inside the building". When he pulled into the parking lot, he heard gunshots and called for emergency assistance, Lieutenant Jimmy Bolt said.

Lewis said the victims, whose names were not immediately released, were taken to the Prisma Health hospital in Greenville, some via private vehicle.

"Everything's turned over, there's a few chairs in there, some food on the floor, bottles busted". There are no suspects in custody.

The county sheriff described the scene inside the club as "an absolute mess". "There's some pretty large amounts of blood in various parts of the club".

The nightclub had advertised on its Instagram account a Saturday night concert featuring a rapper, Foogiano.
