Authorities are investigating a shooting outside Centerfolds strip club on Richmond Avenue.



The manager tells Eyewitness News no one should have been in the back parking lot around the time the shooting happened because the club closes at 3 a.m.

A security guard says he heard something, but did not see the shooting.

The attorney for the club, Casey Wallace, says that the incident has nothing to do with the club as it happened after business hours. Wallace also tells ABC13 the club is cooperating with the police department in any way possible.

Wallace says neither the victim's vehicle nor the woman are known to employees at the club and were not associated with it.
