Gunfire erupted, and several people were reportedly shot outside a Denver nightclub during the early morning hours of Saturday (December 27), following a performance by Bay Area superstar E-40.
According to local news outlets, several people opened fire at around 2. a.m., as they exited with a crowd from Denver’s Club Vinyl. During the hail of bullets five people were hit.
Police said that all five victims were transported to Denver Health Medical Center where they were in stable condition. One person is in critical condition, said the hospital, while four others were treated and released.
“It was bullets flying everywhere. It was automatic. It was like a machine gun, ba-dop ba-bop ba-bop ba-bop. It was just really crazy,” Kendall Davis, a security guard with the nearby 11th Avenue Hotel, told KUSA. “At first, we hear a wave of shots and we didn’t realize it was gunfire until we seen a lot of people running by. So then definitely I wanted to secure our building, so we hit all the lights, locked the front door, secured our business because we didn’t want any shooters running in.”
E-40 was performing before a sold out crowd, said reports.
What led to the shooting is currently unknown. At press time, it was unclear if any arrests were made
