ORLANDO, Fla. - A man who suffered a gunshot wound after shots were fired Thursday at an Orange County strip club drove himself to a hospital, deputies said.
Deputies said when they arrived at the Diamond Club on Semoran Boulevard at about 2:10 a.m., they found “indications of a shooting,” but neither victims nor a gunman were found.
However, a 30-year-old man reportedly drove himself to Florida Hospital East where he was taken into surgery, according to a news release.
The man, whose name was not released, suffered gunshot wounds and is listed in critical condition, deputies said.
An employee at the club said there was an argument inside before shots were fired.
The shooting isn’t the first time authorities have responded to the strip club.
- In 2010, four robbers ambushed and shot a man outside the club.
- In 2013, a young girl was found sleeping in a car in the parking lot while her father drank inside the club.
- In 2016, a man was killed and two other injured after a shooting outside the club.
From my vantage point, I counted 8 evidence markers on the ground at this Orange County strip club. Diamond Club Employees say it’s a pretty calm and safe spot. They’re surprised by the shooting. pic.twitter.com/Fqg8todjP8— Ty Russell (@TRussellWFTV) August 9, 2018
