PALMETTO, FL (WFLA) — Detectives are trying to figure out who shot and killed a man outside a Palmetto strip club early Monday morning.

Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the Atlantis Gentlemen’s Club, on U.S. 41 in Palmetto, around 2:50 a.m. Monday, after someone reported a shooting. They arrived to find Dominick Orr, 27, of Bradenton laying on the ground, unresponsive. He suffered from multiple gunshot wounds.

Detectives say club surveillance video and witness accounts show the victim and Durrell Jones, 31, involved in an argument in the parking lot. They then began shooting at each other. Investigators say it appears as though two security guards working at the club also fired their weapons during the incident.

Jones left the scene but was located by detectives who are interviewing him about the incident. No arrests have been made.

Detectives have not determined what the initial argument was about.
