Victor Hotel Shooting

Victor-Hotel-sm.jpgTwo men were fatally shot and another wounded outside Victor Hotel early Christmas morning. Police arrested 26-year-old Taiwan Smith after he pulled out a gun and shot a bouncer and two patrons outside the West Loop nightclub. The ordeal began after Smith was kicked out of the club for an unknown reason and he returned and "just started shooting." He is expected in court later today and faces multiple counts, including first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a handgun and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon. [Sun-Times]
