The victims all sustained non-life threatening injuries.

So far, the investigation indicates that there was an altercation inside the club just before the shooting.

Buford, Dontay RA 30-year-old man has been arrested. Dontay R. Buford has been charged with three counts of Felonious Assault, three counts Use of Firearm in Commission of a Felony, and possession of Firearm by a Convicted Felon.

Buford is currently is the Virginia Beach jail on no bond.

This isn't the first time there's been a shooting at the club. Just over a year ago, three people were hurt in a shooting outside the club when it was known as Bentley's.

That happened not long after the Virginia Beach Sheriff's Department pulled deputies from working security in the parking lot because of concern for their safety.

    Or they don’t have a job…yeah I would think that..dope sells don’t open up till 6pm or so! And another convicted felon (pos ) with a gun!! How many kids does he have and are they on the s.n.a.p. / cardinal card program?

    In this case you sound very judgemental andunaware. A person is suppose to be innocent until proven guilty but I believe the police found someone who made a mistake once before to pin this on. Kids on the snap progam lol thats sad all black people are consider to be on the snap program yet there are plenty of white people as well. So quick to judge smh

    I did not think snap program because of color. It would be most likely due to life style. Did you assume they were saying snap because of color because the person is white. That in itself is prejudice.

    And the people who have them as well. Kids today are totally lost..
    . Pray for them and their families.
