Murder at a night club in Nashville

November 10, 2007

Nashville -- A Nashville neighborhood is still rattled after a fatal night club shooting. "It was just wrong. How it all went down it was just wrong," said Kenya Andrews. 

22 year-old Roland Bryant III of Adel and 24 year-old Mealo Alford of Tifton were both shot around 1:30 AM Saturday morning.

The shooting, in front of the Blue Flame nightclub off Marion Ave and North Mathis street. Bryant was sent to the Berrien County Hospital where he later died.

"My friend was holding his bullet wounds because he got shot three times, and I was just trying to keep him warm," said Andrews.

A floral memorial now remains where Bryant was shot. Police say the details of this shooting are sketchy, but this isn't the first time bullets were fired here.

"Last month on October 11th or 12th I got a phone call telling me my brother had been shot," said Priscilla Clowers.

During both shootings residents say help arrived too late. "When they respond the ambulance came 30-40 minutes later. I mean what chance does a person have of survival," said Clowers.

"He was out here too long. If the ambulance would have come out here like they were suppose to he would have lived," said Andrews.

A situation they say wouldn't happen anywhere else in Nashville.

"If something happened in other neighborhoods I think they would respond faster. I am not trying to make a racial statement, but down here there is a lot of crime and they seem to be overlooking it. I wish something would be done about it," said Clowers.

Dispatch refused to release the time EMS was called out to the scene.

The shooting is being investigated by the Nashville Police Department, Berrien County Sheriff and the Georgia Bureau Investigators in an intense joint collaboration.

Anyone with information about the shooting can call the Nashville Police Department at 229-686-6558.
