Rodger Young Jr.

Age 16

Memphis, Tennessee

A shootout in a Memphis nightclub

He was spending his night at a club in the rhythm-rooted city of Memphis, Tennessee.

The nightclub was frequently in headlines: There had been two shootings there in recent years.  

The Infiniti Sports Bar and Grill on North Watkins Street in Memphis made headlines for a third time for the same reason. On April 15, 2018, Rodger Young Jr., 16, was shot outside the club during a shootout that witnesses said lasted for roughly an hour.
