LAWRENCE — One man is dead after a shooting outside the Punto Final nightclub early this morning.

Lawrence police Chief John Romero said two men were shot around 1:15 a.m. in the parking lot of a nearby gas station at the corner of Broadway and Tremont Street.

One of the victims was pronounced dead at Lawrence General Hospital shortly afterward, Romero said. The second man was in serious condition this morning, but is expected to live.

Both shooting victims were believed to be in their 30s, police said.

Romero said witnesses told police the two men had been in Punto Final prior to the shooting. He said police are investigating whether a dispute inside the club might have led to the shooting.

State police detectives and crime scene analysis technicians assigned to the district attorney’s office were called in to conduct the homicide investigation.

It is the fourth homicide in the city so far this year, Romero said, equalling last year’s figure.

LAWRENCE (AP) -- Lawrence police say one man is dead and another is in critical condition in the hospital after a shooting outside a city nightclub that has been a problem area for law enforcement for years.
The victims were shot early Sunday morning after they left D'Cache, previously known as Punto Final.
Police say 34-year-old Julio Zuniga of Haverhill, a father of five, was killed. His friend, 34-year-old Roberto Francisco Sanchez Rios of Haverhill, was admitted to Lawrence General Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds. He is expected to survive.
There have been no arrests.
Chief John Romero says the incident started with a verbal altercation inside the club. He says police have responded to the scene 177 times since 1999, although the club has been under new management since July.
