Two people were shot after a heated discussion inside SpotLight, a gentleman's club in Hialeah, escalated into a shooting outside, reports Hialeah Police spokesperson Eddie Rodriguez.

The hundreds of patrons inside are being detained for questioning.

Wednesday police responded to a call about a fight at the adult entertainment club, located at 766 E. 25th Street, in the early morning hours of 3:30 a.m. By the time police arrived, a shooting had already occurred.

Rodriguez reports that an officer fired his gun after being confronted by an armed suspect. It is unclear whether this shot made contact with the suspect.

The incident ended with two people transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital in good condition with non-life-threatening injuries.

Rodriguez says that they have one person in custody and they are still investigating how and when shots were fired.

"This is a busy nightclub with literally hundreds of patrons inside who saw how this started and who saw how this ended," Rodriguez told HuffPost Miami. "We are trying to get a statement from everyone."

Police hope to reopen the streets around SpotLight by 11 a.m.
