Police said four people in a Dodge Charger had left a club and were headed downtown when a white Ford Fusion pulled alongside. 

Shots came from inside the Fusion. A 29-year-old man in the Charger was able to flee on foot, but a 21-year-old woman, a 24-year-old man and a 27-year-old man were hit by the gunfire. 

The 27-year-old victim died from his injuries.
