A man was ki!!ed and two women were wounded in a shooting early Sunday at a Miami Beach nightclub, police said.
Authorities began receiving reports of shots being fired just before 4 a.m. at the address for the GALA nightclub in the city’s South Beach area, Miami Beach police said in a news release.
Officers on the scene reported finding three persons with suspected gunshot wounds. According to authorities, a man and two women were taken to Ryder Trauma Center, where the guy died. The women were expected to make a full recovery.
A man who was working near the nightclub at the time of the shooting spoke through a translator.
“The club’s security ran out to the street. The women ran out of the club crying and were all shaken up,” said the man, who asked not to be identified or show his face on camera. They tried calming them down. Due to all the noise, the gunshots couldn’t be heard. It was really bad, really bad.”
Investigators were seen going in and out of the nightclub for almost 16 hours. Police didn’t report making any arrests or identify any suspects or a motive for the shooting.
Detectives had not identified the victims as of late Sunday night, but family and friends identified the guy as Lowell Grissom Jr.
Grissom is better known as “Lo,” a rapper and talent scout for Chris Brown Entertainment. Brown posted a tribute to him on Instagram, Sunday night.
