WACO (February 2, 2014) An off-duty Marlin police officer who was working as a security guard was involved in a shooting early Sunday morning at a Waco nightclub.
Waco officers were dispatched at around 2:45 a.m. Sunday to Club Crush at 1014 North 25th St., in response to a report of the shooting, police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.
The officers determined that someone had fired a gun inside the club during a disturbance and that while the off-duty officer was dealing with that incident, another disturbance started outside of the club, Swanton said.
When the off-duty officer, whose name was not released, went outside to check on the second disturbance, he saw a man firing at several other men, Swanton said.
The off-duty officer fired at the gunman, who fled, along with the men at whom he had been shooting, Swanton said.
Shortly after that, police were advised that a man had turned up in the emergency room of Providence Health Center with a gunshot wound to his leg, Swanton said.
His name and details about his condition weren’t available Sunday morning.
Police are investigating the disturbance inside the club and the officer-involved shooting outside of the club as separate incidents, Swanton said.
