3 shot after brawl breaks out at St. Louis nightclub

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Three people have been shot after a brawl broke out inside a nightclub near downtown St. Louis.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the shooting happened late Wednesday at the Mood Lounge. Authorities originally said five people were struck by gunfire but revised the number Thursday morning. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

St. Louis rapper Ronald Walls says the club was hosting an open-microphone "rap battle." Walls says a rapper enraged a group in the audience and a fight broke out.

Walls says some people then left the club and went to their cars and retrieved guns.

The same club was the scene of a shooting March 2 that left three people wounded.
