Two people opened fire. The rampage left two people dead from gunshot wounds. Gerraneisha Gibson, 21, and Justin Marshall, 23. Marshall is believed to have been part of the mob fight, while Gibson is believed to have been an unintended bystander.

Another eight were hospitalized, of which at least three have gunshot wounds. Police made six arrests at the scene but said they are looking for more suspects. The suspects have been denied bail.

Clairborne County is a rural county with less than 10,000 people and ranked as America’s number one blackest county. It is about 86%+ black. The area is so rural that the site of the bar has not even been indexed by Google Street View yet.
