5 people were shot outside the Marquette Lounge in west Atlanta on Labor Day.
The Marquette Lounge is a popular ghey bar that hosted a Black ghey Pride party on Monday, Sept. 6.
The gunshots sent Black Pride attendees scattering into the neighborhood around Proctor Street and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard, according to Channel 2 Action News.
Some of the victims were transported to area hospitals in ambulances and in private vehicles.
The Black Pride party was scheduled to end at 6 a.m. and Rapper Lil Kim performed earlier in the night. She was not among the injured..
According to WSB’s Kristin Holloway, a fight occurred outside the lounge and a man fired a shot into the air and then into the crowd.
Atlanta police are investigating whether the drive-by was a hate crime.
