Two men robbed a Tacoma nightclub, left and then came back to shoot the manager, police said.

Now, detectives have released surveillance photos of the two in hopes that the public can help identify them.

The holdup happened about 3:30 a.m. on Aug. 26 at the Cultura Event Center, 5602 S. Washington St.

Two men in their mid-20s walked into the club and robbed the female manager at gunpoint. Moments after they left, they returned and shot the woman.

She is expected to survive.
