SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - One person is in critical condition after a shooting at a nightclub in Old Town Scottsdale on Sunday evening.

Around 6:20 p.m., Scottsdale police were called to a shooting at a nightclub near Drinkwater Boulevard and Indian School Road. Officers found one person with gunshot wounds. They were taken to a hospital in critical condition.

Scottsdale police say the incident involved multiple people, but there is no immediate threat to the community. An investigation is underway, and no information on a suspect is available at this time.

The general manager Chelsei Chaple said, “We had a customer inside that someone wanted to come in and attack or hurt, and we stopped the person at the front door. But they basically found another way to get a friend in, no weapon, no nothing, to chase this person out of the building.” She said that when security escorted the person out of the club, there were more individuals outside waiting to hurt him.

“There was a person waiting outside the club with a gun...and they started firing,” Chaple said. “There were actually in the area, so we have sheriffs at our establishment every night at every single event. And that person pulled into the parking lot as soon as that person started firing the gun.” She added that as a business, it’s a priority for the club to come and have fun in the city.
