EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating a shooting behind an East St. Louis club that left two men and a woman injured, including an unarmed security guard who was on duty.

Police were called to the club around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Police detective Michael Floore tells the (Belleville) News-Democrat that the shooter allegedly came from the rear of the club, chased one of the victims and the other two got caught in the cross fire. He says a 21-year-old male was shot multiple times, a female was shot twice and the security guard was struck once.

Authorities say two victims are in critical condition and one is in stable condition.

There have been no arrests.
