Man charged in quadruple shooting outside W. Baltimore after hours club
Police have charged a 19-year-old man in a quadruple shooting that occurred before dawn Sunday morningoutside a West Baltimore after-hours club.
The incident - initially reported as a double-shooting - occurred at about 5:30 a.m. as private security was clearing people out following a fight at an after hours club called "Rasta's" in the 2100 block of W. North Ave., according to police. Police said a gunman opened fire, striking three people, at least two of whom were employees of the club. A fourth victim was later identified after walking into a Baltimore County hospital for treatment.
Police spokesman Det. Jeremy Silbert said detectives this morning charged Karon Darren Shaw, of the 1600 block of Moreland Ave., with attempted murder.
Court records show Shaw has two prior arrests on his criminal record, both in the past month and for minor offenses - drug possession and gambling.
I've got a call in to the liquor board to find out more about Rasta's. There are several clubs in the city licensed to host after-hours parties, but others that operate illegally.
