Police are investigating whether an altercation at a popular Northeast strip club might have led to shots being fired at a “party bus” that had picked passengers up from the club early Sunday.
Fifty passengers were on the bus, which was transporting people from the Stadium Club on Queens Chapel Road to Baltimore around 3:30 a.m., when the bus stopped along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. A man riding in another car fired at the windshield of the bus, U.S. Park Police said. No one was injured in the shooting.
U.S. Park Police said there may have been some interactions between the bus and another vehicle as the bus stopped on the median strip. A black four door older model BMW then stopped in front of the bus, and a male passenger leaned out the window of the car and fired at the bus. Police are still looking for the suspect.
A woman who answered the phone at the club declined to comment.
The Stadium Club made headlines recently when The Washington Times reported that the club’s co-owner, Keith Forney, provided the $6,000 in contributions to D.C. Council member Harry Thomas Jr.´s questionable nonprofit, Team Thomas. Mr. Forney’s contributions were the second highest total amount donated to Team Thomas.
The D.C. Office of the Attorney General filed a lawsuit against Mr. Thomas last week accusing the Ward 5 Democrat of using money earmarked for a youth baseball program for personal expenses.
