All the injured men are believed to be from London.
The outbreak of violence prompted police to shut the club and dozens of clubbers were interviewed about what they saw.
A handgun hidden in a bag was found in a car park at the rear of the club.
A large area of the town centre was cordoned off throughout the weekend as officers conducted finger-tip searches in their hunt for clues.
Suffolk Police has today revealed it has applied for a closure order for the club.
Officers investigating the killing and the other shootings have appealed for anyone inside Zest at the time of the attacks to call them on 01473 613500.
