Gun fight at the Oasis Club in Dixons Mills Friday night, Dec. 27, sent two men to the hospital.

Sketchy reports from people at the scene said a man at Wayne's Pool Hall in Dixons Mills (scene of another recent shooting) had his money taken by two men.

He, according to unconfirmed reports, followed them to the Oasis Club. Another brawl broke out and the man who was robbed shot Courtney Holt of Thomasville and Derrick Coaster of Dixons Mills. (Spelling of this man's name could not be confirmed by press time.)

Holt underwent surgery and is reported to be up and walking.

There is no information available on the second victim.

People in Dixons Mills remember when the thugs from Thomasville got shot at Wayne's.

This recent gun play may have been a retaliatory ploy. It is not confirmed bin some of the locals fear things will get even worse between the Thomasville and Dixons Mills drug gangs.
