Manassas City Police are investigating the shooting death of a Dumfries man early Sunday in the parking lot of KC’s Restaurant.
Responding to a call from the restaurant, police found Curtis Kamau Brown, 25, suffering from a gun shot wound at 1:30 a.m. The Dumfries man was inside the restaurant at some point, while a CD promotion was going on inside the club for a rap group called "Killa Mafia," police said.
But restaurant owner Charles Oudeh told News4 that it was a regular DJ party, not an event for "Killa Mafia." According to Oudeh, several people linked with "Killa Mafia" were handing out flyers at the bar -- which Oudeh says he took and threw away because he didn't want to endorse someone else's event.
Oudeh, who gave police the fliers, said the shooting happened as the club was letting out, but the restaurant owner claims Brown was never inside the club.
Brown was taken to Prince William Hospital, where he later died.
No arrests have been made in the case and police released no other details about what might have led to the shooting.
Anyone with information about the shooting is being asked to call Detective Abbott at (703) 257-8042 or the Manassas City Crime Solvers line at (701) 330-0330.
The Manassas City Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in these cases. The confidential 24-hour tip line is (703) 330-0330.
