Off-duty Tenn. Cop Opens Fire In X-Mas Eve Gang Melee

December 25, 2011  | 

Nine people were wounded, when rival gang members began firing at each other while leaving a Christmas Eve party outside a downtown Chattanooga church and teen club.

During the melee, an off-duty officer working security fired at a suspect who pointed a gun at him. Approximately 400 people were outside of Club Fathom when shots were fired.

The club is known for having a "history of trouble," reports the Times Free Press.

Figures! Amazing how our LEO's can't get their arms around these gangs with weapons.

Its not so much the club that has a history of trouble, but rather the "youths" that attend it. Shut down the youths!

Good luck Sam, on shutting down the youth. They all know that the law is so weak, when it comes to dealing with youth problems, that they can get by with anything, even murder. When will this country wake up and see that what they're doing to address these issues isn't working? Keeps attorneys fed though!!!
