An update on another story we told you about earlier this week…. 5 people have been arrested in connection to the shooting at the ‘Club Amnesia’ Nightclub in Marlboro County on Sunday morning. According to Lieutenant Trevor Murphy with the Marlboro County Sheriff’s Office, the names of the five arrested are expected to be released today but all of them were from Rockingham, North Carolina. Five people were shot in the incident while they were walking to their cars at around 1:52 am. Officers say a dark-colored vehicle was traveling eastbound towards North Carolina when it stopped in the road and shot at them in the parking lot. The vehicle then sped off into North Carolina and two off-duty deputies helping with security at the club chased the car while other off-duty deputies rendered aid to victims. 23 year old Bria Byrd and 31 year old Ronnie Oxendine both of Rockingham died at the scene. Three other people who were shot are expected to recover.
