CANTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -- A 16-year-old boy was shot in the thigh outside a Canton dance club for teens.

The shooting took place shortly after midnight Sunday in the parking lot of the After Dark Teen Club on N. Lilley Road. The club was reportedly hosting a "Blackout Twerk Party."

The victim was arguing with a group of teenagers, as many as 10, when someone pulled a gun and shot him. He was taken to an area hospital. His name and condition were not released.

No arrests have been made.

The club holds parties for youth 19 years and younger.
