Police say five people have been shot and wounded outside a Queens nightclub with a troubled history.

The victims were shot shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday following a dispute at the Rose Lounge, located at 89-25 130th St. in Richmond Hill.

The NYPD told the Eagle that four women and one man were shot in the legs and feet. Three of the victims were taken to Jamaica Hospital, while the other two were taken to NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital. Police were still searching for the gunman and no arrests had been made as of press time on Monday.

The same club was the scene of a shooting in April where two men were injured after a Long Island man opened fire.

Police say the club’s liquor license was suspended for six months after the April shooting. The club reopened in October under new ownership.
