Authorities say five people were hospitalized after an early morning shooting at a Tennessee nightclub.

Memphis Fire Department watch commander Shane Walker said he didn't know how many of the injured suffered bullet wounds in the shooting, which happened at about 3:25 a.m. Monday at the Purple Haze nightclub.

He said no one was killed but he did not know the victims' conditions. 

News outlets say four people were shot and a fifth suffered an undisclosed injury. 

It was not immediately clear if the shooting took place inside or outside the after-hours club, which is just steps from historic Beale Street.
