Two dead in St. Helena Island night club shooting (Update: Club shutdown?)

(Updates at the bottom.)

A shooting at St. Helena Island night club Midnight Soul Patrol, near Lands End, left two men wounded and two men dead.

Two men are in custody, Lucas Miles Morgan, 25, and David Bowers, 27, both of St. Helena Island.

Many reports abound, but WTOC 11 has a solid video report (see that here) and The Island Packet has a more in depth written report (read that here).

Update June 25: The two suspects have been charged, Morgan with attempted murder and Bowers with murder — neither has received bond.

Update July 28: The Island Packet follows up and notes that the Midnight Soul Patrol club faces numerous code violations and could see its business license revoked.

Meanwhile, county law enforcement are pressing harder to break up the wave of violent crime on the rural island.
