An altercation Wednesday morning led to shooting that left one man dead outside a strip club and another injured.

Metro Police responded to the call after a victim ran to a convenience store near Bonanza Road and Rancho Drive about 5:10 a.m. looking for help, Officer Jose Hernandez said.

Another man with multiple gunshot wounds was found inside a car in a parking lot outside Larry’s Villa Exotic Lounge. He was taken to University Medical Center and pronounced dead, Hernandez said.

The injured man also was transported to UMC with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening.

In a news release issued late Wednesday afternoon, Metro said its investigators indicated the two shooting victims had been involved in a physical altercation earlier Wednesday in the same location. They had left the area but later returned. That's when the two got into an argument with what police described as an unknown suspect or suspects. The argument escalated to the shooting.

Police say they have not identified any suspects. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact homicide detectives at 702-828-3521 or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers, 702-385-5555.
