The crime

About 3 a.m. on March 9, 2014, Kelsey Shaw was standing in line at the front doors of the Phat Azz Biker Club, 1002 N. Cleveland, when a group of people were thrown out of the club for fighting.

One group stayed by a set of cars parked on Cleveland near the front door, while two other people walked east on Ninth Street. A few minutes later, two people came from between two cars on Ninth, and one of the suspects fired numerous shots at the other group. Kelsey, who was in a crowd farther to the north, was shot and died soon after. She was not involved in the initial disturbance and was an innocent victim.
