NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - North Charleston Police say an early-morning shooting at a club sent multiple people to the hospital in what they described as a chaotic scene.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired at Blue Note Bistro on Dorchester Road just before 1:30 a.m., police spokesman Harve Jacobs said. An incident report states the first officers on the scene witnessed “dozens of people running in all directions and fleeing to their vehicles.”

Multiple people inside the bar were complaining of injuries from the shooting or from broken glass that was the result of “the chaos after the shooting,” the report states.

Three people were sent to area hospitals for treatment of gunshot wounds while others were taken to be treated for cuts, police said.

As police investigated, two other gunshot victims showed up at area hospitals for treatment, the report states.

The report states the victims ranged in age from 28 to 40 years old, but did not specify which victims were wounded and which were cut by broken glass.

Police say two vehicles in the parking lot were also located with bullet holes.

They say the investigation remains active and no arrests have been made so far.

Anyone with information is asked to call the North Charleston Police Department at 843-607-2076 or Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111.
