The shots were fired on May 15th at about 12:40 am outside the nightclub in the 400 block of West Lewis Street.
Police believe the altercation started with underage patrons getting carded at the door.
After getting turned away the teens returned to the sidewalk, where the suspect pulled out a pistol and fired two shots into the air. The gun is a black-semi-automatic pistol. The suspect s described as a light-skinned black male about 16-18-years old. He was wearing a blue bandana and white shoes.
