Third Person Dies in San Bernardino Night Club Shooting

A third shooting victim died Thursday, one day after gunshots were sprayed into a crowd outside of a nightclub and gas station in San Bernardino.

Up to 30 shots were fired into a crowd of around 200 people in the parking lot of the Stingers Bar and NightClub before 2 a.m. Wednesday, killing one person, officials said. Minutes later, another person was fatally shot at a nearby ARCO gas station.

A third shooting died about 5 a.m. Thursday, San Bernardino Police Lt. Richard Lawhead said.

Lawhead also said one person was taken into custody but did not release additional details.

One person remained in critical condition Thursday, and three others were treated and released from the hospital.

The ordeal began earlier in the evening when a group of people had been denied entry into the club, police said, because security recognized them as gang rivals of patrons who were already inside.

After they were turned away, they hung around the parking lot, and police were called to remove them from the property, police said. The group left when police arrived, but returned to confront the other group as the club was closing.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to call the San Bernardino Police Department at 909-384-5742.
