February 20, 2013 

Three of the five victims shot outside of a Columbia nightclub Saturday have been released from the hospital, police say.

Three men and two women were taken to an area hospital after they were shot outside of the T&T Uptown Lounge, at 3003 Colonial Drive, Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons said.

Shots were fired from a moving vehicle around 3 a.m. Saturday. Investigators believe the shooting followed a verbal argument inside the club, Timmons said.

One victim remains in critical condition while another is stable, she said.

Officers have asked that anyone with information call CrimeStoppers at 1-888-274-6373.
