NEWPORT NEWS - A man was shot outside a nightclub in Newport News early Wednesday.  

It happened around 1:00 a.m. at Pur Lux Lounge in the 11900 block of Jefferson Avenue. A post on the club's Facebook page shows there was a New Year's event going on at the club.  

Investigators say witnesses said there'd been a dispute inside the club and those involved were made to leave.  That's when gunshots were heard and someone called police.

The victim, who is in his 20s, was taken to the hospital with a gunshot to his buttocks, police said. Some cars in the parking lot also had been hit by gunfire.

Anyone with information about this shooting should call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
