Police are still trying to piece together the chaos that erupted in a Lexington nightclub. Someone opened fire in Club 333 late last night. When it all ended, three people were shot, and another woman injured as everyone rushed to escape the gunfire.

So far, police are left with more questions than answers surrounding the shooting. The victims and witnesses they questioned didn't tell them anything.

Lexington Police are still looking for who's responsible for opening fire in Club 333 on Newtown Pike, and why it happened, but so far, they are not finding many answers.

"We've not gotten any information on what started it, who it was, we don't have any information about a suspect at this time. Robbery-Homicide came out to the scene, so they'll be investigating that further," says Lt. Michele Young, with Lexington Police.

An employee at the club tells 27 NEWSFIRST that Philip Collins is the man who was shot twice, but he wasn't the only one hit.

"We also had two other victims that were minor injuries," Young says.

It was a man and a woman, who both were grazed by a bullet, each near their hip. And that's not all, one more person was injured as the 60 to 70 people in the bar forced their way outside.

"Another female victim, when people were trying to get out, that was trampled by all the crowd that were trying to leave the club," Young says.

Lexington Police filed a report with Alcohol Beverage Control, and the ABC cited Club 333 for having a disorderly premise.

The man and woman barely grazed by the bullets, as well as the trampled woman, were treated for their injuries and are expected to be okay.

The man who was shot twice, Philip Collins, is still being treated at UK hospital, and is listed in fair condition.
