An Alabama county coroner says three people have been shot to death in a nightclub shooting.

Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd tells The Associated Press that the three were shot late Thursday night at Teaser's, a nightclub outside Dothan.

Houston County sheriff's Capt. Antonio Gonzalez tells The Dothan Eagle that a suspect was in custody Friday morning.

Byrd says the victims were shot with a handgun, and that they were struck mostly in the abdomen and chest areas. He said the shooting happened around 11:30 p.m. after some type of dispute among patrons of the club.

The nightclub, in the Wicksburg community just west of Dothan, is about 100 miles southeast of Montgomery.
