A 26-year-old man was shot to death at a strip club in Harbor City early this morning, and now police are trying to figure out how it might have been connected to a shooting that happened at the same time next door.Two men at the Fantasy Gold club in Harbor City got in an argument just before 2 am this morning. One of the men went outside to get a handgun and returned to shoot the man in the head, according to City News Service. The victim died later at a nearby hospital.

The suspect was described as black man in a hooded sweatshirt, with blue-steel semiautomatic pistol, he said.

At around the same time, someone fired several rounds at a car that pulled up next door to the Harbor Inn. There were three women in the car but none of them had critical injuries: one woman suffered graze wounds, another was injured by shards of glass and a third made it out unscathed. It was unclear if or how the shootings were connected.
