It’s a sad fact of life that the sort of people who kill and get killed have a strong tendency to have previous criminal records. Normal people settle their differences peacefully, or at least not fatally. The sort that gets into lethal confrontations tends to have other run-ins with the law.
Police say (victim), 20, of Burgaw, was shot and killed outside the Club 609 nightclub at the intersection of Market Street and Kerr Avenue in Sunday’s early morning hours.
Nine 911 calls placed from outside the club described a chaotic scene, many of the voices barely able to be understood above the cacophony of yelling and screaming. One caller described it as a “big riot” after gunshots erupted amid a fight that spilled out into the parking lot.
No word on who the shooter was. Hopefully he will be caught very soon. The victim, however, has some interesting criminal history.
The club sounds like it is a bad place. Even if Alcohol Law Enforcement decides to let them keep their license, I’d avoid the place.
