Albany --   A Monroe High School student was shot outside Club Climax in East Albany early today.

Eighteen-year-old Jason Rogers was shot in the buttocks, and is hospitalized at Phoebe Putney.

Police say they saw a large group of people running for their cars from the club, where a private Easter party was being held.

Witnesses told police that several people were fighting, and that two men went to their cars and got guns and started shooting.

Rogers told police that he thought the Eastside Boys street gang was  involved.
