The shooting was reported just after 1 a.m. at Cameo Night Club on Kellogg Avenue in Linwood.
Officials said that one person was killed, and at least 14 others were injured. Some of the victims were taken to area hospitals via ambulance, and others arrived via their own conveyance, police said.
Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said that several of the victims have life-threatening injuries.
“We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims,” Neudigate said. “It’s going to be a long night for our homicide units to investigate.”
Neudigate added that hundreds of people were inside of the nightclub at the time of the shooting, and called it a “chaotic crime scene.”
...Cameo nightclub has had several issues in the past, authorities said.
“We are aware of it. It has had some challenges in the past,” Neudigate said.
Sixteen were shot, 15 injured and 1 killed.
