Det Sgt Jez Dargan from Trident said: "This is a serious incident with one man firing multiple shots in a nightclub on a busy Friday night.
"The panic from the clubbers after the shots led to even more injuries and I would urge anyone who was in the club and hasn't spoken to police to come forward and help us catch this man."
