But relatives of Sean Gamble, the 22-year-old killed in the incident, are speaking out and say police recklessly fired into a crowd after a fellow officer pulled a gun.
James Gamble, 24, was at the club with his brother and said the officer, who he believed was off-duty, had been aggressive toward a woman. His brother started arguing with the officer, and the argument escalated, Gamble said. He said a group of uniformed officers then began firing on the crowd when the plainclothes officer reached for his service weapon.
Police say the officer, William H. Torbit Jr., had lost his badge in the altercation.
"It was a crazy scene," James Gamble said. "They let off a good 20 shots, maybe six of them. They were just shooting."
