I do know the first name og and some descriptive information about the victim. If you want me to post it I will.

I just found out who it was thanks to the help of another poster, if its the man I am thinking of its even sadder - he was a good guy. Lets not disclose this on the forum out of respect for his family, tomorrow when it hits the newspapers/TV its fair game - I am 99% positive it will be made public.

Okay.

I'm wondering if this will make the news. Have you gotten any info on his condition?

nothing yet. One of my contacts just left the management team and the other switched locations so I didn't have a direct in with the new room yet. A third friend was going to be a partner but he backed out. So besides people on the scene and friends who work elsewhere thats all I have access to today for info. This is the first new room in a long time where we didnt have someone on the inside feeding me security details - I am as in the dark as you guys are this time. And I am very sad.

I'd say the chances are very high this will be in the press. I am surprised they let the two of you leave the club, you were witnesses. Contact the precinct, let them know you were there and fill them in. They will need information - you did nothing wrong by being there.

Can't say I saw anything of use. The robbers were masked, and pretty much everyone was down on the floor.

I just got the call, he didn't survive. The shooting was an accident, a robber dropped the gun on the floor and he was shot. This happened while they were going around robbing the players.

This question is for TT.

Of course names are forbidden, but can you confirm that this was the place that opened really recently?
