Officers were called to the bar at 3675 Satellite Boulevard just after 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 20 after getting reports of a person shot, according to police. Blackwell was found dead in the parking lot from a single gunshot wound, Valle said.

No further information has been released about the circumstances around the shooting, and police haven’t said what motivated the fatal incident.
