Memphis police told FOX13 five men were shot and one didn’t make it.

“Someone needs to step up and do something, I mean these guys commit these crimes and let them back out,” Donavant said.

MPD told FOX13 what led up to the shooting is under investigation.

“No one got shot in the club, no one found a gun in the club,” Donavant said. “Everything that transpired was in the back of the club outside."

Donavant told FOX13′s Jacque Masse he has metal detectors and 15 security guards to keep customers safe. Now, he wants the city of Memphis to put Skycop cameras up in the shopping center for more safety.
