One Dead, Three Injured in Nightclub Shooting Near Westside Market

Posted By on Fri, Sep 16, 2011 at 9:00 AM


Club Envy sits just a block from the historic Westside Market, down on W. 25th and Monroe. Early this morning around 2:15, shots were fired at the club after an altercation inside spilled outside.

Sgt. Sammy Morris told the media that three off-duty cops were working security at the club Thursday night and Friday morning. When a fight broke out, the three officers escorted the individuals outside. According to the statement, one of the men involved saw another man who he had been fighting with inside the club and got out his gun, firing into the crowd.

Two of the three officers on scene then fired back, hitting the suspect. With gunshot wounds to his neck and shoulder, the suspect then hopped in a car and fled, hitting a bridge just a short distance down the road. Morris says the suspect died on the scene. The car, with the body still inside, was towed early this morning to the Medical Examiner's Office.

The three other injured in the shootings were taken to Metro. No word on their conditions at this time.
