    One man is dead after a shooting outside an Oak Cliff nightclub early Tuesday morning.

    The deadly shooting happened just before 1:30 a.m. near Chocolate City, a club off Beckley and Illinois.

    Dallas police identified the victim as 35-year-old Tommy Heads from Lancaster, TX.

    Officers believe Heads exchanged words with some people inside of the club and the fight spilled outside into a nearby parking lot.

    Investigators say Heads walked out of Chocolate City with his girlfriend and down the block to his car at Beckley and Ohio.  Two men confronted them. At least one man had a gun and shot Heads in the buttocks, seriously wounding him.  Paramedics gave him CPR and rushed him to Methodist Hospital where he died a short time later.

    Police reports state that the people that shot Heads also took $100 from him before fleeing from the scene.

    The victim's girlfriend did not get hurt. Investigators are talking with her and hope she can provide some information about who shot and killed her boyfriend.

    Dallas police are searching for the gunman and his accomplice.
