HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M. Holbrook and Detectives J. Roscoe and N. Arellano reported:
Officers were dispatched to a shooting call outside a nightclub at the above address and were told by witnesses that a man (victim) who goes by the nickname of “Cebolla” was outside the club when he got into an altercation with several males. One of the males pulled a gun and shot at Cebolla’s feet. Cebolla and his friends got into a vehicle and began to flee the scene. Just outside the club’s parking lot, a group of males in a Honda Civic pulled up beside Cebolla’s vehicle and fired shots into the car, fatally striking “Cebolla.”
