The Baltimore Sun

Three people were shot in the parking lot by a patron leaving a members-only swingers club in Catonsville early Sunday, Baltimore County Police said. All three victims are expected to survive their injuries, police said.

About 2 a.m. Sunday, police found three people suffering from gunshot wounds outside Tabu Social Club at 1115 N. Rolling Road. Two of the victims were taken to a local hospital and later released. The third victim remained hospitalized and is listed in serious condition, police said.

Police said on Monday that the victims — two men and a woman — were sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot of the business when the suspect left the club with a woman and was assaulting her. Police said the victims got into a "verbal interaction" with the suspect when he fired several shots into the car.

Tabu owner Vicki Gonzalez said previously that the shooting was connected to a nearby after hours club that was recently shut down by the county.

"Last night an unfortunate incident happened in the parking lot of the 40 West Shopping Center, in Catonsville, which happens to be the shopping center where Tabu Social Club is located," Gonzalez said. "While we do not have all of the details at this time, we do know that the victims were not members of Tabu Social Club."

Gonzalez could not be immediately reached again Monday.

On its website, Tabu describes itself as a members-only lounge for single women and couples.

The motive remains unknown. The county's violent crimes unit is investigating.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
