NYPD Identify Suspect In Juliet Supper Club Shooting

New, 31 comments

The NYPD have finally identified a suspect in the November shooting at Juliet Supper Club that left one person dead, two shot, and ultimately led to the club's demise. According to reports, the NYPD believe that Victor Walker, a 47 year old man who has previously served time for both attempted murder and robbery, killed Artis Arthur that night. Police believe that Walker may have targeted Arthur that night in order to prevent him from snitching about Walker's lucrative business venture, which was stalking rich people at nightclubs and robbing them when they tried to go home. Apparently Walker would go to certain clubs and parties that would be attended by successful athletes, rappers, and their entourages and point out targets to rob to accomplices who would jump them when they left the club.

The NYPD believes that Walker may have fled the state and should be considered armed and dangerous. One place you won't find him is Juliet, which closed in January and isn't reopening any time soon.
