GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — A sheriff's official says a shooting at a Greenville nightclub left two people dead and eight wounded.

No one was immediately taken into custody following the early Sunday shooting at Lavish Lounge, but a Greenville County sheriff's spokesperson said they were looking for two suspects.

Authorities had originally said 12 people were hurt, but later told the AP that two victims were likely counted twice initially.

Of the eight wounded, some had non-life-threatening injuries and others were in critical condition. A Facebook post from the club said Foogiano was scheduled to perform Saturday night. A representative tells the AP the trap rapper is safe.


A spokesperson from Prisma Health provided an update on Sunday afternoon.

She said a total of 10 patients were taken to Prisma Health Greenville Memorial Hospital for gunshot wounds following the shooting.

She continued to say the Greenville County Coroner’s Office has confirmed that two of those patients have since died.

All but two of the remaining hospitalized patients were discharged early Sunday afternoon.
