“We are asking them to do the right thing and come forward to police with what they know.”

Specifically, police said they know people in the area were taking cell phone videos “immediately after the shooting.” Investigators are looking to see those videos, as well as any videos or photos taken inside The Den nightclub between 11:30 p.m. Thursday and 3 a.m. Friday.

“What may seem insignificant could be a valuable piece of information for investigators,” police noted.

Police went on to thank those who have “already done their part” to help solve the murder by sharing information with police.
