    On July 11, 2015 at approximately 3:40 a.m., two unknown black males were kicked out of Club Gossip Gentleman's Club located at 4948 N. 56th Street. The two males left the scene in separate vehicles (red 90's Sentra and newer gray Impala) and said they would return later “with choppers.” Security personnel who were working in the parking lot moved to the front entrance along 56th Street in case the suspects returned. Approximately 15-20 minutes later, security personnel observed the gray Impala pull into the front entrance at which time suspect #2 put his head out the window and stated, “I told you I would be back.” The Impala continued approximately 50 yards south on 56th Street at which time a handgun was observed out of the passenger window. Several shots were heard being fired in the direction of the parking lot. Security personnel returned fire at the vehicle.
