Police spokeswoman Erica Van Ross says it happened after two Sunday morning at the Imperial Palace on North Grand, "The victims were all outside the nightclub when the suspects began shooting and assaulting them. A security guard drew his weapon and fired several shots at the ground. It's unclear if one of the shots ricocheted up and hit one of the suspects."The cops eventually tracked down two suspects who allegedly initiated the shooting a few blocks away on the 2700 block of Bacon Street. One of them was wounded in the stomach.
Van Ross says a 28-year-old man was shot three times in the leg and is in critical condition. A 44-year-old man was shot once in the leg and is in stable condition.
