BLUE SUMMIT, MO-- As many as five people were injured in a Sunday morning shooting at a swingers club.

According to Jackson County Sheriff Darryl Forte, deputies responded to a call for shots fired at The Spott club in the 2100 block of Television Place, just after 3:30 a.m.

As many as five people were transported to the hospital by private car; none of the injuries appear to be life-threatening.  Sheriff Forte says three of the victims refused to provide statements to detectives as the hospital.

Sheriff Forte says at least 45 shots were fired, and that it appeared to start as a fight involving several males.  He also says the location has been a frequent source of police calls; Forte says a suspect in an unrelated incident recently rammed several police cars as he was leaving.  The large crowd at the club also made it difficult for investigators to start their investigation.
