ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a street shooting in eastern Pennsylvania has left 10 people wounded.

The shooting outside the Deja Vu nightclub in Allentown occurred shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday. Authorities say most of the victims had just left the nightclub or were standing on the sidewalk outside when the shots rang out.
There have been no arrests, and the motive for the shooting was unclear. Witnesses said they saw several panicked people fleeing the scene on foot, and at least one car was spotted speeding away.
Authorities say all of the wounded were being treated in the hospital and were expected to recover. Their names and further details on the shooting were not immediately disclosed.

2:00 AM on a Thursday Morning?
First off, I hate alcohol.
Second... get home to bed so you can go to work the next morning, and you won't be getting shot. These people are the ones bringing the country down... Thugs.
It's not really fair to blame the victims. There's plenty of good people who work 2nd shift, 4 ten hour days, or have different weekend hours than what's typical. Blame the criminals shooting at people. Hopefully no one was seriously injured.
An article in the Morning Call says that the Lehigh County D.A. Jim Martin expects that the outcome will likely show gang involvement.
If the above commenter believes that these people worked 2nd shift I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell you.
