GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro city officials released 911 calls from a shooting at the Blind Tiger. In one of the calls, gunshots can be heard.
A caller from a nearby business is heard telling the operator that some employees witnessed people running with handguns through the parking lot, but no shots had been fired at that point. A little later into the call, pops of gunfire can be heard in the background, and the caller and operator tell people to get inside for shelter.
Police said two people were shot at the nightclub on Spring Garden Street last Wednesday. Officials said one person had minor injuries and another was already taken to a nearby hospital when police got there. No arrests have been made. If you have information, call Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.
