NASHVILLE, Tenn. – An overnight shooting at the newly renamed Rado's nightclub, formerly Silverado's, led to two wounded victims being rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Metro police said a gunman, later identified as Nicholas Stone, opened fire inside the club just before 2 a.m. Monday.

A witness told police he saw Stone firing shots inside the club.

One of the victims was shot in the backside and the other was shot in thigh.  Police said their injuries are not life-threatening.

Club security apprehended Stone, who faces aggravated assault charges.  Police said they also found drug paraphernalia in his possession.

Stone was previously convicted of a felony in 2009.

Rado's is located on Murfreesboro Pike in south Nashville, just past Briley Parkway.

Monday's shooting is the third at the nightspot since the start of 2011.

Metro police have indicated they will take action against bars and nightclubs with repeated violent occurrences.

In June, nearby Out of Bounds was shut down after several fights at the sports bar including one that left a man dead.

Metro police commanders said the department will take a closer look at Monday's shooting determine if the same action is necessary for Rado's.

Out of Bounds has since been allowed to reopen after adhering to changes mandated by the police.

The bar must now close no later than Midnight during the week and 1 a.m. on the weekends.
