    Some unknown person allegedly assaults his gf, so he randomly fires off the better part of a dozen deadly rounds in public w/ no specific target.
    This is the sort of reckless disregard for human life which will hopefully merit dirtbags like this the death penalty in the not-too-distant-future.

    Club Vanity should be shut down by the city. I live not to far from there and anytime I have driven by in the evening, there is a contingent of police outside. Is this the type of activity we want in our neighborhoods? If the owners cant be reponsible, then shut them down.

    When it was Station 56, it wasn’t nearly as bad as it is today. I live in that neighborhood and have driven past it at night when the club is hopping and it is just rediculous.

  6. PuppyDogsButterflies says:

    He’s the only one that can assault his girlfriend. No one else! He’ll shoot a man for that!

  7. Another moron with a gun. This imbecile should get 3 or 4 years in a cell with other mental defectives.

  8. Why doesn’t the city put it out of business just like they did to the one on the hill?

  9. BlaineCGarver says:

    Why anyone would patronize a thug magnet like that is beyond me.

  10. At least he is a lousey shot. Thank God!!!

  11. Back in my day, The “MEN” settled their differences with their hands. These punks that like to shoot and run don’t deserve the title…Most of them are kids no matter how old he was.

  12. Ortingmom says:

    I am sure it was an accident or his finger got caught,jammed or cramped

  13. tacomajoe says:

    8 to 10 shots into a crowd and didn’t hit anyone – what was he using, a Derringer?

  14. dlockner says:

    Part of the rest of the story is that he was driving a luxury vehicle. Can anybody say…’Asset Seizure’?

  15. hilltopbarber says:

    He just busted em off in the air wasn’t shooting into people

  16. Making this story even more idiotic, this moron is married. SMH.

  17. To make this story even more idiotic, this idiot is married.
