Club's ABC permits threatened

In response to a shooting that took place inside a Goldsboro night club March 29, the state Alcohol Beverage Control Commission on Friday issued an official notice to the registered alcohol permit holders for Sid's Showgirls at 1931 N. William St.

The Goldsboro Police Department is still investigating the shooting.

Three people were wounded, with one victim required surgery.

Alpha B. Vinson and Paul Tyler IV Enterprises have been told by the ABC Commission that their permits will not be suspended. The establishment is encouraged, however, to utilize local law enforcement which the letter refers to as "a tremendous resource concerning proper safety procedures."

Whitney Sawntrice Kasey, 19, a dancer at the club, according to one law enforcement official, was wounded when an unknown subject opened fire inside the club just before 2 a.m.

Goldsboro police and Wayne County EMS responded, taking Ms. Kasey to Wayne Memorial Hospital, where she was treated and released.

Marcus Montrell Mclean, 28, and Tavaris Dequel Thompson, 32, both of Goldsboro, each later arrived at the hospital with gunshot wounds of their own. Both were driven to the hospital in private vehicles and arrived separately from one another.

Wayne Memorial Hospital officials the next day confirmed Thompson had also been treated and released, but said they had no record of Mclean.

Police were called to the hospital when the two men arrived.

Investigators continue to interview Sid's employees and potential witnesses, Goldsboro Police Maj. Al King said.

"Nobody is saying a thing," he said Friday.
