Five people were shot and injured early Sunday morning at a swingers club in Kansas City, Missouri, according to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies responded to shots fired at 3:33 a.m. at The SPOTT Lifestyle and Swingers Club, The Associated Press reported Monday, citing a tweet from Jackson County Sheriff Darryl Forte.

Victims were transported to hospitals and sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and detectives are investigating the incident, Forte said in the tweet.

Three of the five victims with gunshot wounds walked out of a hospital without giving statements to police, Forte added in another tweet.

Forte said the shooting apparently began as a fight among club-goers, and that 45 shots or more were fired. He added that the club is a popular source of police calls, Fox4KC reported Sunday. (RELATED: Suspect In Texas Shooting Reportedly Lost Job Before Rampage)
