COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The fourth man charged in a shooting at a Vista nightclub early Saturday has been released from the hospital and now is behind bars.

Columbia Police said via Twitter Maleik Houseal had been released from the hospital late Tuesday night. He was taken to Alvin S. Glenn detention Center. He was injured in the exchange of gunfire outside Empire Supper Club. 

Houseal is one of four men charged in the shooting outside Empire Supper Club on Lady Street. Eight people were injured, including a woman from Kentucky who was in town for the Gamecocks football game against the Wildcats. She remains in intensive care.

Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster says Houseal and the other suspects are known gang members who are known for criminal activity in Newberry County. 

Houseal, John Bates, Jr., Jarvis Tucker, and Keveas Gallman are charged in the shooting. Houseal is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a crime of violence.

On Sunday, a judge denied bond for Bates and Gallman. Tucker, however, was granted a $250,000 bond.

A bond hearing is Wednesday morning.
