MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC) – Gunshots rang out at a Memphis nightclub that has a history of violence and a teen was caught in the crossfire. He is now recovering at Regional One Medical Center.

This shooting is not the first time someone has gotten shot at the nightclub. The difference is in Tuesday night's case - the victim survived.

Police say there was a disturbance outside of Club Infinity before the 17-year-old victim was shot. The shooting happened just before midnight in the 2500 block of North Watkins Street.

He ran to a nearby gas station, where he was picked up by an ambulance and rushed to hospital in critical condition.

Police say they have no suspects in this shooting.

This marks at least the second shooting incident at Club Infinity since December 2013, which is when two men were shot.

One of the victims, who was celebrating his 25th birthday, was killed. The other victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. There is no word on any arrests in that shooting.

If you can help investigators in either case, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH (2274), text 'AWARD' to 274637 or visit www.528cash.org.
