Nightclub shooting in West Tennessee leaves 1 dead, 19 injured; police seeking suspects By The Associated Press

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) ' Police in West Tennessee say one man has died and 19 have been injured in a nightclub shooting.

Jackson Police Lt. Tyreece Miller said officers were called to the Karma Lounge in downtown Jackson at about 2 a.m. Sunday and arrived to find one man dead, 17 people with gunshot wounds and two who were trampled.

Miller said a dispute among several people led to the shooting. Evidence indicates at least three people used handguns to fire into the crowd.

Killed in the shooting was 19-year-old Lecarlos Todd of Memphis. Another shooting victim was in critical condition Sunday evening at a local hospital.

Authorities released photos of two men taken by the club's video cameras. Miller said investigators want to question them because of their proximity to the events.
