Police: 8 injured in Georgia nightclub shooting

- At least eight people were shot at a nightclub in Georgia, but police say no one was killed.

The shooting in Ashburn, which is about 160 miles south of Atlanta, happened Saturday at around 2:30 a.m. Officials are not sure if the shooting happened inside or outside the nightclub.

Investigators said that they believe the violence was gang-related.

The victims have been taken to Tift Regional Hospital and one was airlifted to a hospital in Macon. Their conditions have not been released.

The Ashburn Police Department is investigating the shooting with the help of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Officers did arrest a party promoter for selling alcohol to those at the nightclub who were under 21, but they say the arrest was not connected to the shooting.

Authorities are asking anyone who was at the nightclub at the time of the shooting to call police to help give a "detailed view of what went on."
