A man from Boynton Beach was charged for murder. The shooter is in jail after the shooting that occurred on Thanksgiving at a Palm Beach County strip club, in which one person died, and two were injured.
Antoine Newton, 37, was transported into Palm Beach County’s Main Detention Center on Thursday afternoon. He was charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery charges. On Friday morning, the Palm Beach County circuit judge ordered Newton to be held without bail.
Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived at The Rose Gentlemen’s Club at 4458 Purdy Lane in Palm Springs, shortly after 3 a.m. They discovered three men with gunshot wounds; one of the men was pronounced dead by paramedics, while the two others were still conscious and taken to the nearest hospital. For now, the identities of the three men are not publically released.
Newton had two prior convictions; in 2012, he was found guilty of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. In 2008 he was found guilty for burglary.
The strip club where the murder occurred, is known as a place where numerous shootings happened; the place changed its name from Flashdance to Rose’s in 2018.
Three years ago, in 2016, a twenty-year-old was shot and killed in the parking lot in front of the club. In 2013 there was a shooting that two men injured. Back in 2005, a club manager opened fire at two robbers.
