Two people have been arrested and charged with capital murder in connection with the shooting deaths of two men at the Temptations Cabaret nightclub in west Tarrant County on Thursday.

Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to Temptations Cabaret in Aledo shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday on a report of an active shooter, according to a written statement from the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office.

Though the club bears an Aledo address, it is technically located in Tarrant County outside of Aledo city limits in the 12200 block of Camp Bowie Boulevard West. 

After clearing the club, deputies entered to find two men with gunshot wounds, according to the release.

EMS was called to the scene and the victims were pronounced dead around 10:30 p.m.

The names of the victims have not yet been released.

Treveon Wilson, 24, and Alexis Burgess, 23, were arrested in connection with the shooting and charged with capital murder. 

Burgess is believed to be Wilson’s girlfriend.

An investigation revealed that Burgess had been employed by Temptations Cabaret, but the club’s management “refused employment” to Burgess, according to the sheriff’s office statement.

An altercation then broke out between Wilson and the two victims, who “sustained fatal gunshot wounds.”

Wilson reportedly sustained a gunshot wound in the altercation and was found receiving treatment at a local hospital, where he was arrested.

The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office and the Fort Worth Police Department will continue to work the investigation, according to statement.
