JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — Police in West Tennessee say one man was killed and 19 other people were injured early Sunday when gunmen opened fire in a nightclub.

Update: Survivor of Lounge Shooting in Tenn. Improves

Jackson Police Lt. Tyreece Miller said officers were called to the Karma Lounge in downtown Jackson at about 2 a.m. Sunday. They arrived to find one man dead, 17 people with gunshot wounds and two who were trampled.

Miller said a dispute between several people led to the shooting at the business, which had advertised a Lane College/Lemoyne-Owen College after-game party on Saturday night. Evidence so far indicates at least three people used handguns to fire into the crowd.

Police are asking anyone who took photos or video inside the club to share it.

Authorities released photos of two men taken by the club's video cameras. Miller said investigators want to question them because of their proximity to the events.

Killed in the shooting was Lecarlos Todd, 19, of Memphis.

Police say 30-year-old Travis Steed was airlifted to the Med in Memphis, where a nursing supervisor said Sunday evening he was in critical condition. Two other shooting victims were in stable condition at a Jackson hospital. The other gunshot victims were treated and released.

In addition, two women were treated and released after suffering injuries when they were trampled by the crowd after shots were fired.
