Rap concerts have become a reoccurring scene of mass shootings across the USA. Around the same time, six people were shot at Playo’s Nightclub in Gary, Indiana. Two people, Jah’Nice Quinn, 26, and Jonte Dorsey, 34, we killed. It is unclear if a special event was going on. However, the club has previously hosted “afterparties” for local rap concerts. The mayor of Gary wants to shut the place down.
