CARUTHERSVILLE, Mo.—One man is dead and six others are injured after gunfire broke out at a party in a nightclub in far southeastern Missouri.

Authorities haven’t released names of the victims in the early Sunday shooting at Club Envy in Caruthersville, 90 miles north of Memphis, Tennessee.

Sgt. Clark Parrott of the Missouri State Highway Patrol says two people are in custody, but no charges have been filed. He says investigators are still trying to determine what happened, but that the gunman and victims apparently knew each other.

Six people were shot and a seventh man was injured when he went through a window. Two of the shooting victims are critically wounded and three are stable.

The club had been rented out for a private party attended by about 300 people.
