CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities say nine people were shot when a fight broke out at a Chattanooga nightclub, where some 400 teens and adults were attending a Christmas party. Police say all those shot are expected to survive.
Chattanooga police said in a press release Sunday morning that an off-duty officer who had been working at Club Fathom fired shots at a suspect who pointed a gun at him, but the gunman got away. The officer was not wounded.

In my family we open one present, we make a fire, we sing carols, we pray, and we have a quiet dinner.
Club Fanthom's website has been taken down after the shootings, but here are the pictures you get when you check Google images.
Looks like quite the wholesome place.
For some reason this strikes me as hilarious. I must be a cynic.
I beg your pardon. That’s a GEORGIA hat on that gangsta. If you want to see our gangsters just google Popcorn Sutton.
Maybe it’s just me, but I stick with one...either the bling OR the tats...but both is a little much for my taste.
Difficult to fathom. By the way, the crooked hat look is so becoming. Lord, am I sick of that crap. Pull up your damn pants.
For some, gang is family.
Wonder if it was all popguns and heavy winter jackets.
Could be worse, at least the shirtless black dude is wearing a belt.
Like in the Zippo commercial, likely all the metal bling stopped a bullet or two.
True dat. The belt is a nice fashion statement. But, I don’t want to be around to catch the ricochet off that bling!
For this you spend your Christmas Eve in blessed peace.
For that those people spend theirs not knowing if they’ll live to see Christmas.
The way things are going, I am not convinced it will be long before people like you will no longer be safe to do what you have been doing on Christmas eve.
This nation is headed for the crapper unless we can turn it around.
The musical ensemble performing at Club Fathom that evening was a charming Hip Hop group called “Natural Habitz”.
By the way, the crooked hat look is so becoming.

In the show ‘The Wire’ from a few years back, the Detectives were trying to plant a bug on a car - They found the car and the White Cop slowly pulled up while his Black partner was moving outside the vehicle, on the other side.
When the driver stopped he asked the young AA gentleman driver where he could buy one of those hats with the bill on the side. The writers had a good sense of humor as it almost became an Abbott and Costello routine with the Black guy all but calling the White Cop stupid for not figuring out you had to turn the cap, but the cop insisted they had to be made that way..
Oh, yes, they successfully implanted the tracking device.
Ah, the G is for “Gangster” not Georgia.
It’s the latest rage.
I've been thinking about it, and I supposed that technically, George Bailey went out to Nick's bar on Christmas Eve for a drink. However, I believe there were extenuating circumstances.
I am pretty sure that George and his boy Clarence weren't packin' his .380 auto to kilz any %^&*^ who disrespected him.
I'll inform the Tennessee Teachers Union that their star pupils spelled "Habits" wrong.
It would be hilarious to talk to the local media about why they are prohibited from pointing out the obvious.
“Authorities say nine BLACK people were shot when a fight broke out at a Chattanooga BLACK nightclub, where some 400 BLACK teens and adults were attending a Christmas party.”
I can imagine their eye bleeding after just looking at that.
And no, I’m not saying that their race is particularly relevant to the story, other than statistically and behaviorally, just how pathetic the media are because of their egregious self-censorship, which is *just as bad* as too frequently pointing out the race of those involved.
And no, it was *not* a “Christmas party”. It was a “December 24th” party. Christmas had nothing to do with it.
So, how many of the nine were shot by the off duty cop missing the “suspect”?
Did the “suspect” shoot anybody? Was it really a gun; or was it a cellphone?
Do “reporters” know how to write a story beyond reprinting what is in a press release?
Don't forget employ the side grip.
I thought they put the sights on top for a reason? Silly me.
I guess we're getting a preview of what a society without families looks like. Instead of children, they have litters that grow up and scatter.
