Mike said he was not at the club that night, but he thinks there were nearly 100 people at the party and can’t believe kids that age had guns.. 

FOX 46 Charlotte asked how he planned to avoid this type of violence in future.

“We have security. It’s not like we don’t have security, but as far as that demographic we’re not going to have these types of events ever again,” Mike explained. 

He didn’t want to go into much more detail about the night due to the pending investigation but offers his condolences to the families and those affected.
