TEMPE, Arizona—An altercation outside a nightclub in suburban Phoenix erupted in shooting, leaving 13 people wounding including two in serious condition, U.S. police said Saturday.

Police are looking for two young men as possible suspects after the gunfire occurred shortly before midnight Friday in the parking of The Clubhouse Music Venue, located about 7 miles east of downtown Phoenix.

At least two of the injured were hospitalized in serious condition, while the others were treated for wounds that appeared less severe. He said some of the injured drove themselves to the various hospitals in the area so police aren't sure if there were other victims besides the 13.

Police are searching for the suspects who fled from the club on on foot. Sgt. Carbajal didn't have immediate details on the altercation, a motive, or the type of guns used.

Calls to the club went unanswered early Saturday.

Over a dozen shot, witnesses everywhere, yet no description of the suspects. I guess it's a secret.

Very odd.

Whatever the details of this crime, I’m betting that the MSM will initially blame it on “right wing hate mongers”.

It was a rap concert. From azcentral.com: Witnesses told police that two young men wearing dark clothing opened fire on people standing outside the clubhouse. "Some tough guys came in and started spraying the crowd with gunfire," Reichling said.

How do you shoot 13 people without killing anyone?

A tiny gun?

From azcentral.com:

The shooting occurred during a rap concert by Los Angeles artist Nipsey Hussle, who broke onto the rap scene in 2009 and is a self-proclaimed Crips gang member, according to a New York Times article two years ago.

Not too hard to draw conclusions from that little detail.

I think my picture of this whole event has now come clearly into focus. Just more of the same it seems.

"...leaving 13 people wounding including two in serious condition, U.S. police said Saturday."

U.S. Police? Brought in from one of the FEMA reeducation camps?

There may be no need to guess. According to this report,
Tempe Police spokesman Sergeant Steve Carbajal said officers responded to reports of shots fired at the Clubhouse Music Venue at 11:30 p.m. Friday local time.

Carbajal said police had identified 13 victims from the incident. Two were in serious condition at local hospitals.

"Witnesses have reported that after the shooting, two black males wearing dark colored clothing fled the scene on foot," Carbajal said. "Those individuals have not been located at this time."

A local report had a man being interview who said that the line to get in was much longer than the venue capacity and the crow mood was getting ugly. Don’t know how that translates into the shootings.

I’m guessing the shooter didn’t use a fiddycal.

Shotgun from a distance, random unplaced distant shots, lucky victims, etc.

Don't let your children be shot dead at a rap concert run by a self-professed member of the Crips gang. Get rid of cable and call DIRECT TV.

I can’t imagine shooting 11 people with the intention of only very minor wounding and being successful.

There aren’t that many places you can shoot a person even with a 9 that just cause a “flesh wound” except in the movies.

If the rear sight on the pistol is located on the side of the gun you may have just what you need to do that little damage with that many shots from a 9mm.
