COLD CASE HOMICIDE
About 3 a.m. on March 9, 2014, Kelsey Shaw was standing in line at the front doors of the Phat Azz Biker Club, 1002 N. Cleveland, when a group of people were thrown out of the club for fighting.
One group stayed by a set of cars parked on Cleveland near the front door, while two other people walked east on Ninth Street. A few minutes later, two people came from between two cars on Ninth, and one of the suspects fired numerous shots at the other group. Kelsey, who was in a crowd further to the north, was shot and died soon after.
Kelsey, an innocent victim, was not involved in the disturbance in this tragic incident. The photos below were provided by her family.
