SummaryEarly morning, police responded to Select Lounge for crowd control and dispersal operations due to disorderly conduct and numerous fights at the location. Officer William Torbit (dressed in plainclothes) responded to call and intervened in an altercation in the parking lot. Was assaulted and stomped by 6-8 individuals and drew his gun, then fired to stop the attack. Four uniformed officers rushed the area, didn't recognize Officer Torbit in plainclothes, and fired at him. In addition, one of the individuals assaulting Officer Torbit—Sean Gamble—was also shot and killed (likely by Torbit, himself), and four other persons (including a uniformed officer) were wounded. All of the rounds fired were by Officer Torbit and four uniformed officers. The shooting lasted 6 seconds, and 42 rounds were discharged, all by police officers.[5] A plainclothes officer and civilian died on the scene from the shootings, three women were wounded, and a uniformed police officer was shot in the foot.
