Authorities are also investigating two other shootings that occurred outside Club 360 on Barton Chapel Road at about 11 p.m. Two men, Larry Antwan Sanders, 22, and Keith Polite, 20, were shot in his hips and abdomen, respectively. The men said they went to the club to pick someone up and got into an argument with a man they didn’t know, a sheriff’s report said. The man fired at their car and the two victims ran away from the scene. They told police they didn’t realize they had been shot until they saw blood on one another.
