Police Make 3rd Arrest in Strip Club Shooting

Waterbury Police Department

Waterbury police have made a third arrest in connection with a shootout outside a strip club.

Rayshan Smith, 35, of West Haven is accused of opening fire in the parking lot of Pandora's Cabaret the morning of March 22 at 141 Washington Ave.

Police say  three of the shooters were bouncers contracted by the strip club.

The incident began with a brawl inside the club that bouncers forced into the street, police said. The suspects then fired into the crowd, wounding three.

Just days after the melee, Mayor Neil O'Leary asked that the venue be shut down and urged the state Liquor Control Commission to deny its application for a liquor permit.

Investigators believe drugs and alcohol contributed to the incident.
