Three leave hospital care after nightclub shooting

Three of the victims in a nightclub shooting last weekend on Colonial Drive have been released from the hospital, according to the Columbia Police Department.

CPD says two more victims -- one in critical condition and another in stable condition -- remain in the hospital.

The incident happened shortly before 3 a.m. Feb. 16 at the T and T Uptown Lounge.

Preliminary information suggests that witnesses saw shots being fired from a car outside of the club, police said. There may have been an altercation at the club before the shooting, according to investigators.

Tarsha Craft says one of the victims is her son, Kevin.

"To constantly go to the hospital, go down that long hall, and go in that room to see my son, I break down every time," said Craft.

Even more heartbreaking for Craft is that investigators have not received a single tip. Craft is hoping for a breakthrough in the case.

Criminal investigator Valeria Moorer says the shooting was not random. Moorer says she's determined to find the answer and bring closure to the victim's families.

"They may be scared, and I understand that, but if you have any information, please call Columbia Police," said Moorer.

No suspects have been identified.

Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott encourages anyone with information about the incident to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
