  1. Just another typical Friday night in Chicago, I mean Columbia. More repeat gun violence at a business that should be shut down. Not Vibez this time but the morning is young. From the police scanner:

    23:59 p.m. Officers reported being near Plush nightclub

    12:02 a.m. “Shots fired at Plush!”

    Officer says: “it happened right in front of me.” Multiple suspects involved.

    One suspect was “clutching a weapon in his waist band, armed and dangerous.” Does this mean there is a threat to the public?

    12:08 a.m. One gunshot victim arrived at the hospital by private vehicle.
