Ten people were wounded in a shooting outside Allentown, PA nightclub DejaVu, WFMZ-TV reports. Captain Bill Lake, with the Allentown Police Department, said that the shots were fired around 2 AM on Thursday morning (6/20). Ten people, most of whom had just left DejaVu and were standing on the sidewalk when shot, were taken to the hospital, Lake said, where many remain. Thankfully, there were no fatalities.

Club owner Osiris Guzman told CNN that the perpetrators were riding in a white Cadillac Escalade SUV with no license plate, that made two U-turns on the club’s block ahead of the incident.

Authorities say the incident was likely gang related, and they believe three shooters were responsible, with at least one of the victims the likely target. In a statement, Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin said that although no arrests have been made, “it does not appear that the community at large is at risk from the perpetrators involved here.”

More from WFMZ:

All of the shooting victims are expected to recover. Witnesses and some of the victims are not cooperating with police, officials said.

At least 23 security cameras line the block. Investigators are hoping reviewing that video will shed some light on what happened and who was involved.

Directors at the Hope Rescue Mission, just feet away from the club, said the violence feels too common. It’s the third shooting on the block in 2019.
