Bluefield (WVVA) - Police continue to investigate the shooting death of a man outside an area nightclub while family and friends mourn the loss of a loved one.

Dwayne Steptoe, age 27, of Bluefield was shot to death around 3:00 AM Sunday morning near Club Savoy on Princeton Avenue in Bluefield, W.Va.

No arrests have been made in the case and investigators say they are currently interviewing witnesses and two possible suspects. Owners of Club Savoy say the shooting did not take place on their property and Steptoe never entered the club that night.

A makeshift memorial for Steptoe has been erected just off Bland Street near the parking lot of the night club where the shooting was committed. Flowers and cards have been placed at the sight in remembrance of the victim. 

According to family members of the victim, Steptoe returned to the Bluefield area just a few weeks ago.

"We responded to a fight call down at Bland and Princeton Avenue approximately 3 a.m. Sunday morning. Upon our officer's arrival, Dwayne Steptoe had been shot. We have interviewed several people today and yesterday too. We have interviewed some here and some at their homes," says Chief Joe Wilson of the Bluefield, West Virginia Police Department.

Steptoe was pronounced dead at Bluefield Regional Medical Center.
Police have no clear motive at this time.
