— A man and woman were shot at a strip club north of Hillsborough Thursday night, Orange County officials said.

The man was shot in the stomach and the woman in the leg at the Platinum Club at 2600 N.C. Highway 86 North, emergency service workers said.

An alert asked area law-enforcement to be on the lookout (BOLO) for a black man driving a dark sedan resembling a Ford Crown Victoria with no hubcaps. Several black and white female passengers were in the car. Officials did not know its license plate number or direction of travel.

The car's occupants were considered armed and dangerous and should be approached with caution.

Hillsborough firefighters and EMS workers tended to the victims. The man was transported to Duke University Hospital, and the woman to UNC Hospitals.

Orange County sheriff's deputies did not immediately have any information about suspects, officials said.

    Yep the Platinium Club was the place Crystal Gail Magnum worked at. You can tell by the people who work there what kind of place it is. Not too nice in my opinion....

    Have you ever been to The Platinum Club? Since I'm sure you haven't, you need to keep your comments to yourself. Better yet, I'll extend a personal invitation for you to come by and check it out. After you see how nice it really is your opinion will surely be different.

    I believe that's the same club where Crystal Gail Mangum was stripping a few days after her lies that she was "raped" and couldn't walk.

    350.00 for a VIP Membership! I would have thought that would keep the riff-raff out.(NOT)The entire business is nothing more than riff-raff.

    More like $20.00.....The Platinum is just a 2008 Brothers 3 (for all the people that live in Durham)
