ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. -

Anderson County deputies are investigating a shooting that took place at Andrew's on Cinema Center early Sunday morning.

According to the incident report, deputies were called to the club around 3:30 a.m.

They located the victim, a 25-year-old male who suffered a gunshot wound to the hand, near the entrance of the club.

Witnesses told deputies the shooting was triggered by an argument inside the club. They say the suspect then went to the parking lot and returned with a gun and opened fire, reports state.

EMS arrived and transported the victim to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

This is not the first shooting at Andrew’s or in the area.

“It is usually a fight between one or two people and then it escalates from there,” says Becky Chandler who frequents Andrew’s.

Deputies investigated a shooting at Andrew’s where two people were hurt last year.

A few businesses down from Andrew’s, a murder happened at the former Club Xctasy in April 2012.

The nightclub went under new ownership soon after, but the establishment’s violent history remained. Deputies say another shooting took place outside the club in August 2012.

“It is very scary, because you never know like when are closing, what we are going out into,” said Linda Warker, owner of EZ2B Fit Studio 1 on Cinema Center.

Deputies say they will continue to patrol the area.

They are currently looking for the suspect involved in Sunday’s shooting.

The suspect is described as 6’2” male with a stocky build. He has a shaved head and a beard. He was wearing cargo shorts with a blue shirt as the time of the alleged shooting.

If you have any information, you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
