Police are reportedly looking for at least two suspects after Tuesday’s shooting at a Texas nightclub left three people dead and a fourth person critically injured.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the three shooting victims were pronounced dead at DD Sky Club in Houston. Authorities have not provided a description of the suspects, and police indicated a possible third shooter may be at large.
While the deceased shooting victims have not yet been named, KPRC reported that all three were local rappers in their 20s. The three men reportedly had family members at the nightclub on Tuesday night.
DD Sky Club is located on the second floor of a strip mall. KHOU reported that on the night of the shooting, the nightclub was hosting an open mic night for rappers.
A security guard told KHOU that they search all men who enter the club but not the women — leading the guard to believe women snuck in the guns involved in Tuesday’s deadly incident.
There were reportedly 30 people in attendance during open mic night. At one point, someone apparently instigated a fight, which a security guard attempted to defuse when someone brandished a gun, the Houston Chronicle reported, citing police.
The security guard reportedly attempted to confiscate the gun when a second clubgoer pulled out a gun and made threats. Police said both armed men fired shots, hitting two men involved in the altercation and two people who apparently were not involved.
The security guard was uninjured. Police are in the process of interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance footage from the nightclub. It remains unclear what led to the shooting.
