1 person dies in South Carolina nightclub shooting


LORIS, S.C. (AP) – Authorities say one person has died and others were injured in a shooting at a South Carolina nightclub.

A Horry County Police Department spokeswoman tells multiple media outlets that people were shot early Sunday morning at the P&R Club in Loris. Spokeswoman Krystal Dotson says one of the victims died from the injuries.

The conditions of the others aren’t known.

A police report says witnesses told officers that two men argued inside the club and then began shooting at each other outside.

The report says a security guard told police he then fired at the men, who fled the scene. The security guard says as a car left the scene, one man shot out a window and he returned fire.
