Port Richey, Florida -- Deputies are searching for the gunman who killed one man and put another in the hospital outside a Pasco County strip club.

It happened early Thursday morning at the Brass Flamingo, a "gentlemen's club" on U.S. 19 across the street from Gulf View Square Mall.

Pasco County Sheriff's investigators say at 2:15 a.m., just after the strip club had closed for the night, someone called 911 saying shots had been fired outside.

Deputies raced to the scene and found a man dead in the parking lot. 

Another man had been shot but was still alive. He was taken the hospital with injuries that are described as not life-threatening.

The gunman, Tarurezs Bullock, took off running. Deputies brought out a tracking dog and sent up a helicopter to try to find him. That search continues Thursday morning.
