    this was a wild scene. I got off the metro a few minutes after 9:30 and there were swarms of cops in the station, and cop cars on both exits. You could see all the lights and cars when the train pulled up. On florida avenue, there were maybe 50-100 teens shouting to one another and milling around and all at once some started to run, and several cops on foot chased them into traffic on NY avenue. N street was completely blocked with caution tape.

    I was walking up 1st Street around 6:00 and there was a large crowd of people in their teens/early 20s waiting outside Ibiza for something. I’m going to go out on a limb and bet the Ibiza event attendees and the shooting participants were some of the same people. The funny thing was seeing an old white couple arrive at the Hilton in a cab and realize the hotel they were staying at was across the street from a night club with a huge, loud crowd waiting outside. They looked mortified.

    Does anyone know if we can still protest the liquor license renewal for Ibiza and what the best way to do that is? I’ve generally been tolerant of the place despite the unruly crowds on weekends, but events that lead to shootings on my block are the final straw for me.

      Contact the ANC commissioners for ANC6C (http://anc6c.org/). Unfortunately I believe the deadline to protest their liquor license was 11/25, but the ANC did vote to protest the renewal. Also, Ibiza went into bankruptcy earlier this year, but as we all know, that really means nothing with regard to a business staying open or shutting down. Whether ABRA listens to the ANC remains to be seen, but I can’t imagine that ABRA would not take this latest incident into consideration. I don’t know the timeline for ABRA to make their decision…Anyone else know?

    I was there as the teens were let out of the club. I live over at first and m. My mother and grandmother were staying down the street at the Hilton across from Ibiza.

    I was getting ready to walk home and something didn’t look right. It didn’t look like the normal club craziness that plagues this street on the weekend. The kids in swarms racing to watch something. I watched in horror from the lobby windows as I saw two boys fight another, throwing him on the ground. They started kicking him and then stomping and jumping on his head. Out of the hundreds, people were laughing, shouting, and watching….doing nothing. Then a couple ran in saying they heard shots on the corner of the club. Three white boys ran in after that, looking winded and greatful to get away. Short fly after, metro police, housing authority, transit police, and vice teams swarmed in. I ended up going back upstairs until the madness was over.

    I am appalled that I couldn’t safely walk across the street in my own neighborhood. That children, not adults, can act so ruthlessly towards one another without a bit of remorse on the day after Christmas. All this responsibility lies on the shoulders of the club. Ibiza has been nothing but a head and heartache on the local community.

      Sounds like an awful club, but I’m pretty sure some of the responsibility rests on the shoulders of the kind of people who attend these clubs, also…
