It's disappointing that we as a society can't have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bullshit!!!

Police are investigating beef between gang members as the cause of the nightclub shooting.
Eyewitnesses say Brown was throwing up gang signs in the club and was performing with a red bandana. Several known gang bangers surrounded him at the time of the shooting.
Both Game and Knight are affiliated with the Bloods.
