Man wounded in shootout outside Ill. strip club

BROOKLYN, Ill. (AP) -- A shootout in the parking lot of a southern Illinois strip club has left one man wounded and five in jail.

Brooklyn police Chief Delbert Marion says the shooting happened early Saturday outside the Bottoms Up Nightclub.

One man was shot and wounded and was transported to an area hospital. Police have not released his condition.

Five people were jailed after the incident, but the shooter who wounded the man was not among them. He is said to have fled the scene, and officers are searching for him.

No other information was immediately available.
