According to investigators, Wilson had been at another club earlier that night and was involved in an altercation with a woman in the parking lot.  They say that disturbance did not lead to Wilson’s death.

However, during that disturbance, police say, Wilson brandished a gun and a group of people in the area, including Parker, thought Wilson was pointing the gun at them.

They say Parker got a gun and, when he and Wilson met up at the 2468 Club, shot him.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
