Angelo Dorsett was killed after a gunman opened fire on patrons at the G-Spot nightclub at Faith Avenue north on Sunday morning. A gunman shot out the front door of the nightclub and entered in search of another man but then began firing indiscriminately into the crowded bar as patrons scrambled to escape.

At a press conference on Sunday, police showed CCTV footage of the front entrance and foyer of the club that captured the gunman entering the establishment unmasked and brandishing a handgun.

“Prior to this incident there was an argument in the club which soon escalated between a male and at least two other males,” Chief Supt Paul Rolle said.

“These two males left the club and returned a short time later, and upon their return one of these men was armed with a handgun, and he began discharging shots from the outside of the establishment, shooting out the front entrance door. He then made good his entrance into the establishment, where the door was locked to be buzzed in, and began looking for this individual.”

He added: “Patrons on seeing him began to run and he began discharging shots indiscriminately into the crowd.”

Mr Dorsett died at the scene after he was shot in his back, according to Chief Supt Rolle, who said police responded to the incident around 1.30am.

Two other men were shot during the incident and were taken to hospital.

Chief Supt Rolle confirmed that the gunman’s intended target escaped the scene unharmed.

Police previously arrested a man from Kemp’s Crescent off Baillou Road in connection with the murder.
