Mary Israilova and Anthony Lloyd were arrested following a Feb. 6 shooting at a Sandy Springs strip club. 

Two people have been arrested following a shooting that took place earlier this month inside a Sandy Springs strip club. 

Police say two gunmen cornered a Doll House customer behind the bar, fired off several shots and then ran into the parking lot, according to Channel 2 Action News. 

A victim — who told police he’d been receiving threatening messages over a money issue — was shot in the back while jumping over a bar to escape, Sandy Springs police Sgt. Sam Worsham told the television station. A second victim was hit by random bullets in the Feb. 6 incident.

Anthony Lloyd was charged with aggravated assault and attempted murder; he is in the Fulton County Jail. Mary Israilova, who was in Pennsylvania Thursday awaiting extradition to Georgia, was charged as an accessory to the crime. The second gunmen has not been identified. 

911 calls obtained by Channel 2 convey a distressing scene. 

“We got to get out of here. Ain’t no exit,” one caller said. Another said a man was walking around with blood on his shirt.

Police say both victims will be okay. 

The Doll House was one of three adult entertainment establishments raided by Sandy Springs police in December. Nineteen citations were issued to its employees, and a 28-year-old woman was arrested for solicitation of an illicit sexual act.

Frantic 911 calls paint a frightening picture of the gun battle.
