The teens were partying at Club 187, at Martin Luther King Drive and Marcus Avenue, in September when a suspect threatened to shoot a rival group with a handgun, according to police.
Three teens -- including Chauncey Brown, a sixteen-year-old from the Dutchtown South neighborhood -- left the club to avoid a confrontation when four black males in a white Dodge Challenger pulled up and started shooting.
When the bullets cleared, Brown was missing. His friends say they looked for him but couldn't find him in the dark. By 4 p.m. the next day, Brown's guardian called police, saying he hadn't responded to calls or messages.
Police found him one-tenth of a mile north of the club, face down, with a gunshot wound to his chest in the back of a house in the 4700 block of Cote Brilliante Avenue. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
