IRVINGTON, N.J. – Authorities say the fatal shooting that left three men dead early Christmas morning at a New Jersey strip club apparently began when a man tried to enter the bar with a gun but was stopped by a bouncer.
Two other men were wounded in the shooting at about 12:45 a.m. Wednesday at Slick's Go Go Bar in Irvington, about 15 miles west of New York City.
Prosecutors said the three dead men included the club owner's son, Pierre Clervoyant, 34, of Elizabeth, who was also a club employee, Woodley Daniel, 32, of Irvington and an unidentified third man was apparently an unintended target.
The two wounded men were only identified as a 27-year-old Irvington resident and a 34-year-old East Orange resident. Details on their injuries were not disclosed.
A man in the neighborhood told CBS New York he was not surprised about the shooting and said this isn't the first time somebody got shot and killed at Slick’s.
The strip club is located in an industrial area of Irvington, a few blocks from the Garden State Parkway. Roughly 100 people were in the club when the shooting occurred, a witness told WABC-TV.
The gunman remained at large. A reward of up to $10,000 was offered for information leading to his arrest and conviction.
