Shots were fired at the club last weekend during a concert. It had been rented out for an event.

Charles Allen Jr. was killed and two others were injured. Police say everyone was the target of the shooting and that it wasn’t an attack on the LGBTQ + community. Even so, the officers continue to investigate.

“We just wanted everyone to feel safe and know that this wasn’t going to happen. It was a very unfortunate event. I’m still adjusting and trying to do my best after experiencing it, ”said Riffe.

While the club was closed, upgrades were made to its security system. Your number one priority is making sure people know they are safe.

The club received a lot of love and support.

“It was overwhelming. I think I cried all the way home and the rest of the day with just text messages and phone calls and posts on my wall and Utopia’s wall and [owner Earl Winner’s] Wall. It was overwhelming but it is very much appreciated, ”said Riffe.

Like many companies, Utopia was just beginning to emerge from the pandemic. Then this happened, but they have plans to move forward.

“Come out and take part. We’re an all-acceptance club, just because it’s LGBTQ makes everyone welcome, ”said Riffe.
