July 7--  Two Vidalia men were hospitalized after being shot July 4th weekend at a Metter nightclub.

Metter police say 19-year-old Xavian Sharp and 25-year-old Robert Robinson were injured in shootings which happened about two a.m. Sunday morning at Club 46 located east of Metter on Highway 46.  Both men were airlifted to Savannah.

Officers say the club was filled with over 500 people when they were called to break-up fights.  They believe the shootings may be gang-related.

One man who was caught fleeing the club, 20-year-old Timothy Hunter of Metter and a Florida address, is being charged in case.  Officers say at least two other suspects are being sought.
