A shooting in front of an Irvington, N.J., strip club early Christmas morning left three men dead and two others injured.

Police told the Star-Ledger at least two suspects tried to get into Slick's Go-Go Bar just after midnight on Christmas but were stopped by a bouncer. One of the suspects opened fire on the bouncer during a pat down.

Authorities said multiple shots were fired, and the bouncer and two other men were killed.

The New York Daily News identified the bouncer as Woodley Daniel, 32, and the second dead man as Pierre Clervoyant, 34, the strip club owner's son. Both were taken to University Hospital in Newark where they reportedly died.

Police were trying to determine if the third person who died, Mushir Cureton, 27, of Newark, were with the suspects and shot by the bar's security or if he was shot accidentally.

"It appears the gunman was trying to enter the bar armed and was stopped by the bouncer," Chief Anthony Ambrose of the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said.

Emergency personnel transported two wounded men – a 27-year-old from Irvington and a 34-year-old from East Orange, to University Hospital in connection with the shooting.

Other suspects drove away at high speed in a grey vehicle, police said.

The Star-Ledger noted Slick's Go-Go has been the scene of several shootings, including an incident in 2010 in which one man died.

The Irvington Police and the Essex County Prosecutor's Office Homicide/Major Crimes Task Force are both investigating the shooting, authorities said.

Irvington resident Alfred Lawson told WINS-AM that the local bars there have become too dangerous for most people.

"There’s always shootings there, man," another unidentified man said. "That ain't the first time somebody got shot and killed at Slick's, that happens all the time. It's terrible out here, that ain't nothing surprising."
