Popular Downtown Straight Club ‘Spire Nightclub’ Known For Ever Growing LGBT Presence Has Scary Wednesday Night For Club Patrons.
(HOUSTON) — A night out in downtown Houston gets chaotic for club goers, leaving at least two people with gunshot wounds, and other injured as a vehicle drives into a crowd leaving Spire Nightclub.
According to Houston Police, pandemonium broke out in the nightclub’s parking lot shortly after closing. “It’s a really confusing scene at this point,” HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said, “We’re not exactly sure who’s the victim and who’s the suspect in this.”
According to the Houston Chronicle, ‘a fight led three individuals to drive a car into a crowd of people. The car hitting a patron with impact enough to shatter the vehicle’s windshield.’
A club patron in the crowd produced a weapon and fired shots at the vehicle. As the vehicle attempted to escape the gunfire, it hit a utility pole.
Houston Police Investigators are attempting to reconstruct the scene, but everyone involved – witnesses, victims, and perpetrators – fled the scene.
Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call the department’s Major Assaults Unit at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
