Authorities in South Carolina have confirmed a shooting early Sunday morning at a club in Hampton County that left at least nine people injured. The State Law Enforcement Division said there were no reported fatalities in the Easter morning shooting at the club in Hampton County, and as of press time no information was immediately available on the severity of the injuries. South Carolina’s State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the early Sunday shooting at Cara’s Lounge in Hampton County, which is roughly 80 miles west of Charleston. A phone call to the nightclub was not answered.
It was the second mass shooting in the state in as many days. A day earlier, gunfire erupted at a busy mall in the state capital of Columbia, where nine people were shot and five people were injured while trying to flee the scene at Columbiana Centre. The victims in that shooting ranged in age from 15 to 73.
