A Memphis rapper also known as Finese 2Tymes, was taken into custody in Alabama last July after a shooting at an Arkansas nightclub that left 28 people injured. Ricky Hampton, 25, was arrested on outstanding warrants out of Arkansas. No arrests have been made in the shooting at the Power Ultra Lounge in downtown Little Rock, which possibly stemmed from a dispute in the crowd and may be gang-related.
A shootout occurred at the Cameo nightclub in Cincinnati, Ohio back in March. One person was killed and 16 others were injured, including one of the suspects, who later died of his injuries. Hundreds of people were in the nightclub when the shooting began after several local men, who were patrons at the club got into an argument. It later escalated into a shootout between them.
An American-born man who'd pledged allegiance to ISIS gunned down 49 people back in June at a gay nightclub in Orlando called Pulse. Omar Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce, Florida, called 911 during the attack to pledge allegiance to ISIS and mention the Boston Marathon bombers. He carried an assault rifle and pistol into the packed club and started shooting. After a standoff of about three hours with people trapped inside the club, police crashed into the building with an armored vehicle and stun grenades and killed Mateen.
