Authorities say three men have died in a shooting at a restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky.
News outlets report that Louisville Metro Police said a shooting was reported Friday night at Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Grill.
The owner Joe Bishop who is a former cop was still in disbelief the day after three customers were killed in a shooting at his restaurant, Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Grill.
“I didn’t think I’d be scrubbing blood off my patio on a Saturday morning,” Bishop told WDRB News. “I thought I was getting ready for everybody to watch the ballgame.”
Bishop said he had just gone to sleep when he got a call around 11:15 p.m. Friday from one of his managers about a shooting at the restaurant. When he got to the scene, one of the victims had been rushed to a hospital, and two others were lying on the patio. According to Bishop, it was a normal Friday night at Bungalow Joe’s when a man walked up to the restaurant and shot three customers, all men, who were sitting in the patio area at point-blank range.
“Nobody had ever seen this guy before,” Bishop said, referring to the shooter. “It was a totally random act.”
Police arrested 33-year-old Michael E. Rhynes Jr. around 12 a.m. Saturday, the news outlet reports. He faces three counts of murder.
The suspect was smiling from ear to ear as he was arrested for the shooting at Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Grill.
The shooter was wearing a “Justice for Breonna Taylor” t-shirt. The mainstream media completely ignored the story and the fact that he was wearing the t-shirt that BLM activists wear.
Taylor became a Black Lives Matter martyr after being killed by Louisville Police during a “‘knock and announce” raid, during which her drug dealer boyfriend shot at police.
If the story was opposite and a white man with a MAGA shirt entered a bar and killed three people the mainstream media would have made a major headline from the story.
A Louisville police spokeswoman says three men were found by police to have gunshot wounds. Two died at the scene of the shooting and another died at a hospital.
The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office later identified the victims as Steven Matthew Head, 24; Toreon Jermaine Hudson, 26; and William Scott Smallwood, 48, all of Louisville.
Hudson has a young daughter, per the GoFundMe for his family.
2020 has surpassed Louisville’s previous record for yearly homicides, after four men were shot and killed in two separate incidents late Friday and early Saturday, according to police.
Police did not provide additional details about what led to the shooting, which reportedly occurred outside Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Restaurant.
