5 shot after brawl breaks out at St. Louis nightclub
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Five people have been shot after a brawl broke out inside a nightclub near downtown St. Louis.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the shooting happened late Wednesday at the Mood Lounge. Authorities said none of the injuries appear to be life-threatening.
St. Louis rapper Ronald Walls said the club was hosting an open-microphone "rap battle." Walls said a rapper enraged a group in the audience and a fight broke out.
Walls said some people then left the club and went to their cars and retrieved guns.
The same club was the scene of a shooting March 2 that left three people wounded.
