After the party finished, a sizable crowd gathered outside the building's front entrance, where employees said a dispute broke out and resulted in the shooting.

At the time of the incident, at least 40 persons were there, according to Finner. According to Arrington, "a number of folks who were present left the area and didn't remain around to provide a statement."

The dead guy was recognised by Finner as Kirshnik Khari Ball, better known by his stage name Takeoff of the rap trio Migos.
