Multiple witnesses who were inside a Berkeley County nightclub early Sunday say a woman celebrating her friend’s birthday was killed by a stray bullet after a fight broke out between members of a motorcycle club and other customers.
Several punches were thrown and at least 10 bikers chased a man outside the Moonshine Saloon into the parking lot, witnesses said.
April Infinger and Aubrey Cade’s husbands shielded them from the commotion as they searched for a safe way to exit, Cade said. Cade then hugged Infinger to say goodbye and to thank her for surprising her with a birthday celebration at the club.
Just as they let go, Cade said, she heard a pop and watched as her friend dropped to the ground inside the bar. She turned to look and saw that a bullet had come through the wall from the parking lot.
Infinger, 32, of Goose Creek, died at a local hospital shortly after she was shot in the back about 12:48 a.m., Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury said.
The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting at the club, located at 216 Myers Road in between U.S. 17A and U.S 52, but released few details Sunday about what happened inside.
