Officers responded to a report of a shooting in the parking lot of Mambo's Night Club at the above address and found the victims suffering from gunshot wounds.  Witnesses stated the victims were walking to their cars after the club had closed when a dark colored SUV drove up and shots were fired from inside the vehicle.  One victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
