Woman arrested for using home as illegal nightclub
Wednesday, April 18, 2012

AIKEN COUNTY, SC - A Beech Island home where three people were reportedly shot earlier this month has apparently been operating as an illegal nightclub, officials said.

The 64-year-old resident, Doris Teasley, has been cited for unlawful storage of liquor, unlawful sale of beer and gambling, said Aiken County Sheriff's Office spokesman Capt. Troy Elwell.

Investigators said they learned of the makeshift nightclub late in the evening of April 8, when three people were shot and deputies with the Aiken County Sheriff's Office responded to the home.

One victim was shot in the back, another in the upper portion of the torso and a third had a head wound after she was grazed by a bullet.

Although there were more than a dozen people gathered at the Smith Hardy Road home the evening of the shooting, Elwell said no one interviewed admitted to seeing anything.

The shooter has still not been identified or charged, he said.

Witnesses have said that the man who was shot twice in the back is still hospitalized with very serious injuries.

Elwell said investigators believe only one shooter fired a weapon but said the gunman had fired the weapon at least five times, striking at least three people.

Investigators said solving a case when no one wants to cooperate is very difficult, adding that no weapons were found at the home.

During a search of the residence following the shooting, he said they found evidence of illegal liquor sales and gambling.

There were no gaming machines in the home, but there was evidence of gambling.

The case is under investigation.
