Shooting outside Club Risqué gentlemen's club in Philadelphia leaves 2 men dead

A SHOOTING outside a Philadelphia gentlemen's club left two dead as police search for a suspect.

The shooting unfolded outside Club Risqué in the Wissinoming neighborhood at around 2am on Tuesday.



When police arrived, they found a 32-year-old man unresponsive with gunshot wounds to the head and leg lying on the ground inside the parking lot. 

He was transported to Temple University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The second shooting victim, a 42-year-old man, was transported in a private vehicle to Frankford Hospital. He also died from his injuries.

“There are a couple shell casings on the sidewalk and one on the highway on Tacony Street,” Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

“But most of the spent shell casings are in the parking lot, and there’s a total of 17 spent shell casings from a semi-automatic weapon. We also found a loaded magazine, also on the crime scene.”

Witnesses told the Philadelphia Inquirer that the two victims had been inside the club together and were shot as they left the club.
