Updated 35 weeks ago HNN Staff

Two victims are recovering from bullet wounds following an early Saturday morning shooting at Club 1201 on Fourth Avenue. Amanda McGinnis , 24, from Raceland, Ky., suffered a minor foot wound. She fled the bar's dance floor when gunshots sounded. Once outside, she found herself to be wounded and was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center for treatment.

About ten minutes later at 2:41 a.m., a man suffering a non-life threatening chest wound arrived at the Cabell Huntington Hospital Emergency Room. Brandon Jennings, 21, of Huntington, underwent surgery and is expected to recover. Investigators will interview Jennings when he recovers from surgery.

According to Huntington Police Lt. John Williams many of the patrons fled the bar immediately after the shooting. Officers attempted to interview several of the witnesses, but no one "admitted observing any altercation in the dance floor area where the shooting is believed to have taken place," Williams said in a prepared release.

No weapons have been recovered. No information was obtained from friends of the victim. According to the Herald Dispatch, the West Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Commission has suspended the license of Club 1201 for ten days.

Any person who may have information on this incident is asked to call 304-696-4444.
