COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — One person is dead and four others are injured after a shooting at a Columbus-area gentleman’s club on Sunday.
Around 2:30 a.m., five people were shot — one of them fatally — when an argument erupted between two patrons at Bucks Platinum, an adult entertainment club at 2830 Johnstown Road in Mifflin Township, according to Franklin County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Maureen Kocot.
Charles Earl Westbrook, 28, of Columbus, was pronounced dead, Kocot said. A second victim, whose identity is unknown, is currently in critical condition. Three other victims are expected to survive their injuries.
After the argument broke out between two patrons, Kocot said some bystanders were hit with stray bullets. A suspect is not yet in custody.
Both the sheriff’s office and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are responding to the shooting, she said.
