Two people are dead and eight are injured after a shooting at a White Horse Road nightclub in the early hours of July 5, according to Lt. Jimmy Bolt of the Greenville County Sheriff's Office. 

The shooting occurred around 2 a.m. at Lavish Lounge, according to Greenville County Sheriff's Office. 

Investigators are looking for two suspects, but do not have any descriptions to release as of Sunday morning, Bolt said.

A sheriff's deputy drove by the club at 1701 White Horse Road and heard gunfire when he called for back-up, Bolt said. Once inside, law enforcement noted multiple victims and learned of others being transported to the hospital in personal vehicles, Bolt said. 

Early Saturday morning, a shooting at Dolce Club – which is next door to Lavish Lounge -- left one security guard injured, the sheriff's office said. 

Bolt said investigators are interviewing witnesses and will look for any connection to the July 4 incident.

"We will certainly look at that. But at this point... I don't know of any connections between the two," he told The Greenville News. 

The incident follows at least three shootings that occurred in Greenville Countyy on July 4 in the Gantt neighborhood of southern Greenville and at Haywood Mall.
