TEMPLE (February 2, 2009)—Lawrence Finley, 32, of Temple was in Scott & White Hospital Monday afternoon with what police described as life-threatening injuries after an early-morning shooting at a popular nightclub.
Police responded around 12:45 a.m. Monday to “JR’s Temple Adult Club” at 806 E. French Ave. after receiving a report of a shooting.
As officers arrived, a large crowed was leaving the area and Finley was lying just inside the building police said.
Witnesses told officers two men got into a fight in the club and one pulled out a handgun and fired at the other.
Finley was struck at least once in the head, police said.
The gunman fled before officers arrived, police said, but has been tentatively identified.
The shooting occurred in what police said was a common area of the club within the view of “numerous patrons,” police said.
