HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – Police are trying to locate a man wanted for a shooting that happened inside a Hampton club early Saturday morning.

Officers were called to the Charm’d Lounge on Wythe Creek Road just before 1 a.m. for the report of a shooting and found the 32-year-old victim suffering from a single gunshot wound. He is expected to recover.

Investigators determined the suspect in this shooting is 46-year-old Samuel C. Jackson, who was the DJ at the club that night. Police say it appears he got into an argument with the victim, left the club to get a gun, then returned and shot the victim once.

Jackson is wanted for maiming, brandishing a firearm and discharging a firearm in a public place.

There were no other injuries reported as the result of this incident.
