Police investigating shooting at Gaffney night club

GAFFNEY, SC (FOX Carolina) –

A police presence gathered outside a Gaffney night club early Saturday.

Our FOX Carolina crew at the scene reported seeing law enforcement at Club Empire on Birnie Street.

Police later confirmed that a shooting had taken place at the club. The call came in around 1:45 a.m.

Crime scene tape was put up at the scene as well as markers for evidence in various spots outside the club.

A witness on scene told FOX Carolina three people were hit in the shooting but at this time police would only confirm one victim was injured.

Our crew at the scene spoke with the club owner’s mother, Cora Rodgers, who said the shooting is simply devastating.

“It’s too much violence in this world,” said Rodger. “It’s sad that people cannot go out and have a good time – it’s got to always be a predator that’s in the group that’s gonna cause chaos and hurt innocent people.”

Rodgers also expressed her condolences to the victims involved in the club shooting.

“My heart and my prayers go out to the families, the victims and everything,” Rodgers said.
