Police are investigating a violent incident outside a Passaic NJ strip club that left three people with serious injuries.
The incident began with a verbal argument in front of the Palace Gentlemen s Club on Main Avenue in Passaic, New Jersey. It was around 3:00 a.m. when a number of individuals walked out of the go-go bar and reportedly got into an altercation.
At some point, the verbal altercation turned physical. According to authorities, one person brandished a handgun and fired at least one gunshot at a victim. Two other people allegedly used knives to stab other victims.
Afterwards, all three victims were transported to St. Joseph s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey. The shooting victim was treated for a wound to his stomach and the two stabbing victims were treated for slashing injuries.
Detectives with the Passaic Police Department are actively investigating the shooting and stabbing incident and trying to identify the culprits. Investigators are specifically focused on a white SUV that was reportedly used by the suspects to flee the scene of the attack.
If law enforcement officials can eventually identify and arrest the suspects, it is likely that the men would face very serious criminal charges like aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
