Shooting, Multiple Stabbing Outside New Red Rock Cafe

Police said nearly 100 people were involved in a fight at a Gaithersburg restaurant early Sunday.


Montgomery County police are investigating a shooting and multiple stabbing in a fight that quickly escalated outside a Gaithersburg cafe early Sunday.

Police said nearly 100 people were involved in the altercation that broke out inside, and migrated outside, the at 385 Muddy Branch Road in the Festival Shopping Center around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

New Red Rock Cafe was hosting a Rapper Karaoke Night, which attracted a large, young adult audience from around the region, police said. Police said a fight apparently broke out between two women initially, and then escalated when others got involved.

Police said witnesses were uncooperative and they did not have a description of any suspects.

"The officers were able to establish a perimeter and bring the situation under control," Lucille Baur, a police spokeswoman, told WTOP. "Many individuals fled from the scene once police arrived."

Seven people were transported to hospitals, including a Washington, DC, man who suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound, five men who received non-life threatening stab wounds and one woman who transported herself to the hospital for lacerations, officials said.

Another man was punched with a blunt object but did not require transport and a number of others with minor injuries refused treatment, according to police.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the 5th/6th District Investigative Section at 240-773-6237.

There were many dance clubs years ago to go to in the Gaithersburg area: Raffles at the Marriott (which is now the Hilton), Holiday Inn (in the basement), The Main Event (Walnut Hill next to 7-11), and The End Zone in Germantown. ALL OF THESE CLUBS were all shut down due to drug activity and violence caused by black americans. This is not racist...it is fact. P.S.--I am black.

That we use the word "race" with these incidents is a reaction to leftist cultural engineering. It is a dumbed down defensiveness, a utility given minorities to shift blame from behavior to race. Behavior is a choice and genetics you can do nothing about. The violence is about behavior, not genetics. Race or genetics are used to excuse bad behavior. If you are from an enclave of a violent or disturbed culture, like a childish tantrum, you can turn the arguments identifying your behavior into shaming others. This is done by calling them racist and by so doing even you can be empowered appearing to win simply by the shock of shame when people are presumed racist for evaluating a crowd's typical behavior. I read it on this thread. This is a tactic the left has inculcated into minorities. AKA a subset of PC.... Make it about race, not culture or personal responsibility. This is flattery, the tool the left uses to horn in on minority voting blocks. Alinsky's rule # 5. You can trace this tactic back to 20 of so Marxist forefathers of modern American liberalism who have hijacked the Democratic party post WW2.

I forgot to add to the above post: If you can make the issue about race, then you can become a victim even though you were the perp. This is the result of Frankfort School cultural engineering. Truth walks its way into declaring responsibility. If you distinguish what is race from what is choice then we move closer to more truth. The next venue is arguing about environment, to stop blaming poverty and violence upon the greed of others for one's behavior. The inertia of that argument is lost when we see Jesus, the foremost victim, Who owned nothing, rejecting violence. By whom to you want your culture affected, Christianity or the engineering of atheistic Bolshevism? One flatters immorality promoting divisions and the other calls it out by truth. This is why truth is being called hate by liberal activists today. It is the reason Jesus was executed, nothing new really.
