STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) — An Oktibbeha County nightclub, that was the scene of a deadly shooting, will remain closed at least for now.

Sheriff Steve Gladney says a nuisance hearing was postponed when the club's owner showed up without an attorney. A restraining order is still in place until the next hearing which is scheduled for the last week of May.

Authorities say five people were shot at the club last month.

One man was shot in the head and airlifted to the University Medical Center in Jackson.

Another person remains in the OCH Regional Medical Center in Starkville after being shot in the chest.

Another person was transported to Baptist Memorial Hospital Golden Triangle, but their condition is not known.

Two others were treated and released.

Sheriff Gladney says the shooting appeared to be the result of an altercation in the parking lot.

Authorities recovered shell casings they say were fired from two different weapons.

He says so far no arrests have been made and authorities are continuing to conduct interviews.

Sheriff Gladney says surrounding law enforcement agencies are assisting with the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Oktibbeha County Sheriff's Department at (662) 323-2421.
