Murder investigation under way at Union Springs club | News
UNION SPRINGS, AL (WSFA)- Authorities say a murder investigation is under way in Union Springs following a deadly shooting Sunday morning. The shooting happened in front of Club Exclusive, located on Martin Luther King Drive.
Police say Carlos Bullard got into an argument with a man inside the club, and the argument spilled outside onto the sidewalk. Investigators say Bullard was shot once in the back.
There are still bloodstains on the sidewalk where the 23-year-old man died.
Union Springs Police Chief Clarence Wheeler says he's not sure what the fight was about.
The police chief also wants to know why Club Exclusive was still open at the time of the shooting since many clubs in Alabama close at 2am. Closure depends on restrictions in respective cities. Wheeler says there's been trouble in the past, but never something like this.
So far, two people have been interviewed, but police are not calling them "suspects".
This is Union Spring's first homicide of 2012.
