What were a 20-year-old and a 19-year-old doing in a bar? Sounds like the kind of place that invites trouble and inevitably gets it.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Every time I hear about a fight or a shooting at a bar, it's involving someone underage!

If the people involve there is no doubt they was drinking this establishment owners are liable. If they can check ID for everything else why not before allowing people to enter bars.

Never mind; they updated the article to include the name/location of the bar. Strange that it was missing in the first draft of the story...

I was there and its a club that serve drinks if you have a wristband indicating that you are 21. I wouldnt even call it a bar it technically a night club. There was no reason for that boy to die he was the same age as me. he prob got shot cus he looked at someone the wrong way or got pushed or something thats all it takes. DAMN.....

Golly, blacks and guns. Its not often that this combo ends in tragedy.

Mayor please shut down these bars in the city. Pull all the liquor store license in the city and the garbage would stay out of the Heights.

Like someone mentioned before, it wasnt a bar, it was a night club (18+) and thats why the two young men were there. I was there too, I was actually working and caught most of the incident. Iesha if that was you I talked to outside the club when you walked up with him telling me about your trip, you know who I am. That man didnt deserve to die. It actually wasnt even his fault. I talked to him before he entered the club and even inside when they started to tussle. Iesha to let you know I tried my best to keep him from getting into any altercation. When it first ignited in the club i took him and his friend up to the v.i.p to get away from it all and to calm down. Once up there it like they didnt miss a beat, they were back to partying. But soon after when they all were asked to leave the club it was out of my hands. To you and your family, you have my condolences and deepest prayers from something that was truly uncalled for.

Nor is often that perpetual stereotypes and prejudiced attitudes seem to help this type of situation. How about those whites and guns in school environments?(Now you note my sarcasm). You don't seem to be genuinely interested in what occurred at this party. Nor can you know what happened exactly, because you weren't there like myself and some of the others on this forum. So how about you say nothing? And my condolences to this young man and his family.

I own guns and go to the shooting range regularly, and there has yet to be a tragedy such as you allude to.

Don't you mean that the combination of these specific black people and guns resulted in tragedy? If we all follow your logic then black cops and soldiers wouldnÂ’t be allowed to carry weapons.

I saw about a dozen gay white guys this weekend. Does that mean all white men are gay? No. It means those white men are gay.

Stop generalizing.
