CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police are trying to track down the person who shot two-people inside a west Charlotte nightclub.
That was not the first shooting at Club Cameo and the club is just days away from possibly losing its liquor license.
Channel 9 found eight incidents involving shootings or guns reported to police since Jan. 1, 2013.

In addition, the club has until Thursday to decide how to settle four complaints from ABC.
The board claims on Jan. 1 the club was overcrowded, served alcohol after 2:30 a.m. and didn't clear drinks off tables after hours
ABC also reported that an employee had been drinking.
In response to those claims, the club can pay a $4,000 fine, have its license suspended for 40 days or request a hearing.
Club officials must decide by Thursday.
"Permits are active at this time,” ABC officials said in a statement. “The location has a history of past ABC violations for which it paid the fines that the commission levied."
Those past violations date back to 2012 and 2013 when the club's liquor license was suspended twice -- one for three days and one for 20 days.
ABC officers also said employees were dancing nude and the club did not file alcohol sale reports.
