“We ask that you continue to keep the victims and their families in your thoughts and prayers,” police said in the Wednesday morning release.
The shooting happened at a private club at 501 W. Fourth St. around 3:15 a.m. Saturday.
Police said the building, a former bar, was being used by a motorcycle club as an unauthorized night club. Authorities estimated about 100 people were at the establishment when gunfire erupted inside following a confrontation.
A witness inside told The Courier two gunmen came in targeting a specific individual, and then others returned fire. Several people were caught in the crossfire and unable to exit, as the shooters entered through the building’s only unlocked door.
