GRANT, Okla. -- Three people were wounded by gunfire Sunday night at a club near Hugo. No arrests have been made.

The owner of the club may be in trouble with the law. Choctaw County Sheriff Terry Park said Club 580 was opened to be a "fight club," but the owner didn't have the proper permits for just about anything you need to operate a club.

"They didn't like the outcome of the fight, and a brawl started," Park said, adding this isn't the first time the venue on US 271 south of Grant has been in trouble with the law.

He said the club was also closed two months ago.

"I shut them down 'cause he didn't have the proper permits," the sheriff said.

After shots were fired Sunday morning, none of the victims or witnesses will cooperate with law enforcement.

"OSBI is waiting for one of the victims to come forward to where we can get these people that shot them in jail," Park said, adding that the business will remain shuttered and that the owner of the club could face multiple fines for operating the club without the necessary permits.
