A Louisville woman was shot and killed at a Louisville nightclub and the DJ for rapper Jack Harlow has been charged with murder, police say.
Kasmira Nash, 37, and a mother of two, was working at a “Derby Weekend Kickoff Party” when the shooting happened, police said.
Louisville Metro Police spokesperson Alicia Smiley told local media Nash died at the scene from a gunshot wound.
Ronnie Tyshon O’Bannon, 27, was indicted on May 11 on charges of murder and tampering with physical evidence in connection to the fatal shooting, according to authorities.
Kathy Davis, Nash’s mother, told WDRB News she saw video footage of the shooting and Harlow was just feet from the gunfire.
In the video, it appears that a disagreement turned physical before a single shot was fired, police said.
Davis was upset that the club’s security let O’Bannon into the building, as she said, “They knew there had been an altercation prior to this with this same DJ, so he was not supposed to be allowed back in the club.”
Davis referenced a fatal shooting at a strip joint in August 2020. WDRB News reported investigators connected O'Bannon to a fight at X-Clusive Night Club where Torre Cortez Foree, 39, was shot and killed.
Foree was shot outside the club and died of a gunshot wound around 3:30 a.m., police said. That investigation is still ongoing.
O’Bannon turned himself in to Louisville Metro Police after a warrant was issued for his arrest in connection to Nash's death, according to authorities.
O’Bannon is being held at the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections with a bond set at $500,000. He is expected to be formally arraigned on May 17, authorities said.
