WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Two security officers were shot early Thursday outside a West Palm Beach strip club, police said.

According to West Palm Beach police, the shooting occurred outside Club 1152 near Old Okeechobee Road and Wilkins Avenue.

Police said the security officers were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Sgt. David Lefont said there was a disturbance inside the club, formerly known as Rain Gentlemen's Club, which eventually led to the shooting outside.

Crime scene technicians were focusing their attention on a gray Nissan Sentra, which had several evidence markers placed around it.

Police are still searching for the shooter or shooters but haven't released any descriptions.
