Deputies with the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Department investigate a shooting outside a strip club, Aug. 25, 2022.

Four people were injured early Thursday morning when a fight inside a Fort Worth strip club spilled outside and turned into a gun battle, Tarrant County deputies say.

The Tarrant County Sheriff's Department said county dispatchers received several calls about gunshots at Temptations Cabaret along the 12200 block of Camp Bowie West Boulevard at about 4:30 a.m.

Deputies and Fort Worth Police responded and investigators soon learned there was a fight inside the club which continued outside where gunshots were exchanged between groups of patrons and club security.

The sheriff's department said four people were hurt in the gun battle and were hospitalized for treatment. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening. The injured include a woman who worked at the club and three men, investigators said.

"This business has become a dangerous nuisance," said Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn. "We've had several shooting incidents there over the last few years. This creates a dangerous situation for that community."

The three men injured in the gun battle are all facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a security officer, the sheriff's department said.

Police said more information will be released as it becomes available.
