NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

One person is dead and one person injured after an overnight shooting outside of a south Nashville nightclub early Sunday morning.

The shooting happened just before 5 a.m. at Club Cielo on Old Hickory Boulevard and Nolensville Pike.

According to police, shots were fired from the inside of a black or dark colored Nissan Altima.

Officials said the shooting stemmed from an altercation between separate groups of people outside of the club.

Two people were shot during the altercation.

Shivon Abdullatif, 21, was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Nejyar Osman, 20, was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.

Authorities said Sunday morning's violent incident is the fourth to occur at the members-only club in recent weeks, including a shooting that occurred last month.

Neighboring businesses told News 2 the violent acts could possibly deter customers from their establishments and hurt their bottom lines.

"My biggest concern is that this is not been the first or the second or the third incident," one business manager who asked not to be identified said.

He continued, "I mean a lot of time there's a lot of damages to the nearby environment, you know the parking lots and everything. That's not something we want to represent in our company and it's not something that we think will represent Nashville well. So obviously I think it's in everyone's best interest to find out exactly what sort of correction we can do to make everything ok and maybe the club has to shut down or whatever has to happen has to happen."

Officials from the club said they are working with police to install a new security system in an attempt to prevent any additional violent incidents.
