ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Pickens County deputies arrested a man Saturday who they said was wanted in connection with the shooting of three men at an Anderson County night club.

George McMullen, 28, was arrested in Clemson after a short chase following a traffic violation, according to Pickens County deputies.

They arrested McMullen and charged him with driving under suspension, failure to stop for blue lights, habitual traffic offender and simple possession of marijuana.

He is also wanted by Anderson County deputies in connection with Saturday's shooting at Club Exotic about 1:30 a.m.

When deputies arrived at the club on Cinema Avenue, they said they found one person lying in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Inside the club, deputies said they found two other victims with gunshot wounds. None of the victims are said to have life-threatening injuries.

McMullen is being on a $10,000 bond in Pickens County and will later be transported to Anderson County to face charges connected with the shooting.

In March, there was a deadly shooting at the same location, which was called Club Xctasy at the time. Antonio Adger, 21, was shot to death but no arrests have been made in that case.
