Strip Club Patron Shot in Groin Multiple Times

A North Park strip club patron died after being shot multiple times in his groin, according to San Diego police homicide investigators.

Officers arrived to the Ten's Show Club at Ohio Street and El Cajon Boulevard around 9:40 p.m. Sunday after several calls reported shots fired.

Three or four men, described as “probably in their 20s," were in the club being entertained by the dancers and they got into an argument, officers said.

As club employees started removing the men, an employee was hit in the face with a drinking glass, police said.

Guns came out and officers said it appears at least one handgun, if not more, was fired in the business.

The shooting victim, a 42-year old man, has not been identified pending family notification.

Officers aren’t sure where the victim was when he was hit. They found him behind the business and transported him to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

One person seen leaving the business was identified as one of the men originally asked to leave, and he was arrested for hitting another patron with a beer glass just before the shooting began.
