One suspect has been apprehended for his alleged involvement in a shooting outside a nightclub in Allentown, Pennsylvania early Thursday morning.
“Police say 20-year-old Angelo Luis Rivera was taken into custody. Police say several gunmen may have opened fire at the same time,” according to CBS3.
Rivera was charged with several crimes, including possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and criminal conspiracy to commit aggravated assault. Police are still searching for other suspects. Another report said that the incident could be gang related.
Big League Politics reported Wednesday:
According to reports from early Thursday morning, 10 people were hurt after a drive by shooting outside a nightclub in Allentown, Pennsylvania overnight.
“The shooting outside the Deja Vu nightclub in Allentown occurred shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday,” according to The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “Authorities say most of the victims had just left the nightclub or were standing on the sidewalk outside when the shots rang out.”
The crowd reportedly panicked and began to flee in several different directions.
All of the victims are expected to survive, the report said. Police are searching for the perpetrators.
One resident who lives close to the nightclub told NBC10 she woke up to the sound of gunshots and hear a car speed away after the shots stopped. According to that report, there have been prior shootings in the same area.
The identities of the wounded have not yet been identified.

BREAKING: Roger Stone is a Free Man, President Trump Commutes Sentence
The story is developing.
On July 10, 2020, commentator John Cardillo reported that conservative operative Roger Stone received a commutation of his prison sentence from President Donald Trump.

Over the past few days, President Trump has considered commuting Roger Stone’s sentence a few days prior to his report to prison.
Stone is expected to report to a federal prison in Jesup, Georgia by July 14 where he will serve out a three year and four month prison sentence for allegedly lying under oath to U.S. elected officials during the politically contrived Russian interference investigation.
Trump has had a relationship with the Republican political operative for decades.
For some time, Trump has discussed the potential of commuting Stone’s sentence.
When asked by reporters earlier on July 10 about reports of his plan to pardon Stone, Trump remarked, “I’ll be looking at it. I think Roger Stone was very unfairly treated, as were many people.”
Reuters reported that back in November 2019, a “Washington jury convicted Stone on all seven criminal counts of obstruction of a congressional investigation, five counts of making false statements to Congress and tampering with a witness.”
The same report added that “Stone was convicted for lying to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee about his attempts to contact WikiLeaks, the website that released damaging emails about Trump’s 2016 Democratic election rival Hillary Clinton that U.S. intelligence officials have concluded were stolen by Russian hackers.”
Stone’s commutation, while not a full-blown pardon that erases his conviction, is a solid victory for the Rule of Law.
