Two men were shot four times each early Saturday while they were at a nightclub on Kershaw Camden Highway.

An anonymous caller reported the shooting at Grown Folks at 2:58 a.m. Saturday, according to a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

When deputies arrived, they found a 30-year-old man with gunshot wounds lying in the parking lot.

He was about 20 feet away from a white Chevrolet Impala. Blood was found on the driver’s side door frame of the car, the report said.

The man had gunshot wounds to the ribs, abdomen, left thigh and arm. He was taken by Lancaster County Emergency Medical Services to Springs Memorial Hospital in Lancaster.

A 27-year-old man was also shot. He had gunshot wounds to the lower back, upper chest and both legs, the report said.

He was taken by personal vehicle to the hospital.

Deputies spoke to someone cleaning up inside the club after it closed. The man was uncooperative but said he heard gunshots outside, the report said.

A witness told officers the incident started with two women fighting; the witness and some others broke up the fight.

The witness told deputies he heard shooting after the fight was broken up.

The two men who were shot frequent the nightclub, another witness told deputies.

This witness reportedly said he was told the fight started when one of the gunshot victims tried to pick up a woman, the report said.

Deputies spoke to six other people at the club. They said they did not see anything or know anything about the shooting, the report said.

Sheriff Barry Faile said Tuesday that there is a suspect in the case, but no arrests have been made.
