A deadly shooting at a South Carolina nightclub on Saturday morning left one person dead and 14 injured, according to local media.

The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office responded to an Aiken nightclub around 1 a.m. on November 28 at the 7th Lounge on Richland Avenue East, WRDW reported.

“When deputies arrived, they found several people wounded and they immediately went to work to secure the scene and give aid,” the station said.

A male with several gunshot wounds to his body was later pronounced dead at the scene by county medical services, WRDW continued. The other victims were taken to nearby hospitals to be treated for their injuries, according to the outlet.

Police said the three suspects were “inside a light color Chevy Tahoe that left the area after the shooting,” WRDW reported. Witnesses told police that they saw the suspects fire a rifle and handgun from the car, the station said.

WRDW said a police investigation is currently “ongoing.”

Heavy has reached out to the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office and is awaiting a response.
