A 20-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were shot early Monday after a fight broke out in the parking lot of Bottoms Up Gentlemen’s Club in Pinellas Park.

PINELLAS PARK — Detectives are looking for a man who shot two people outside a strip club early Monday.

A 20-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were shot after a fight broke out in the parking lot of Bottoms Up Gentlemen's Club, 8804 66th St. N, deputies said. They were taken to local hospitals with what appeared to be nonlife-threatening injuries, deputies said.

The shooting happened about 1:45 a.m. after two men got into an argument in the parking lot at closing time. The argument turned into a fight, and one man pulled out a handgun and started firing at the other man, deputies said.

The 20-year-old man was the intended victim, deputies said, but the shooter fired several shots and hit the female bystander. The gunman then fled in a vehicle.

Information on the victims is not being released because no suspect is in custody.
