Three people shot at Midtown lounge


It happened just before 1am Sunday near the Link Lounge in the 2900 block of Fannin. Police say the suspect, who's been identified as Raymond Mazon, had just been kicked out of the club after getting into a fight when he got into an argument with another group of people just down the street. Mazon then allegedly pulled out a gun and shot three people.

The victims -- who've been identified as Jacqueline Ortiz, Kevin Bernard and Compton Cuffy, were hit and taken to the hospital. No word yet on the extent of their injuries.

Mazon was taken into custody, where he is expected to be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
