WXYZ.com reported today that a teen boy was shot Sunday morning outside a teen club in Canton. The club, After Dark Teen Club, hosts parties for teens under the age of 19. Saturday’s party was dubbed the “Blackout Twerk Party" and ended at 1:00 a.m. The club is located at 8663 N. Lilley Road in Canton.
The victim, a 16-year-old boy, was reportedly in an altercation with other teenage boys outside the club. One of the boys fired a gun hitting the teen in the thigh. The shooter fled the scene and the teen was taken to a local hospital where his wound was considered non-life-threatening.
At this time, the Canton police do not have a suspect in custody. The investigation is on-going.
At the club's website, they state that there is adult supervision at all times and “Your child’s safety is important to us” and "Our Security Staff is on duty inside and outside the club the entire night."
