Quincy Reese Jr. was gunned down outside of the 77 Lounge nightclub around midnight. after being dropped off to attend a birthday party with his teammates.
Quincy’s best friend, Chris Halton, retold the series of events, saying that Quincy was hit by the initial gunshots that sent the crowd outside of the venue to run for cover. Chris says that he didn’t see Reese get shot, but instead noticed that he wasn’t nearby after the crowd dispersed from the lounge.
