Police asking witnesses to come forward in Club Rumba shooting

Beaumont Police are asking any witnesses to the Club Rumba shooting to speak with police

BEAUMONT - Beaumont Police say they are waiting for witnesses to a deadly club shooting to come forward with information.

“Sadly, most of the witnesses or parties involved left,” Officer Carol Riley said about the Club Rumba shooting investigation.

No arrests have been made yet in a shooting at Club Rumba on Saturday morning that injured five people and killed 27-year-old Ronald Livings.

According to Beaumont police’s initial statement, witnesses told officers a fight broke out inside the club and continued in the parking lot. Multiple subjects retrieved firearms and began shooting at each other.

Beaumont police officer Carol Riley says that the motive for Livings’ death and who shot him remains a mystery.

Officer Riley says they are waiting to talk to witnesses who left the scene of the crime on Saturday morning.

"It'd be great if they talk with our detectives about what really occurred and why people were shot that night. I can't imagine any disturbance that warrants shooting five people and taking the life of one," Officer Riley said.

Beaumont Police records indicate only one call for a shooting at Rumba was made on September 5, 2016.

According to records, these are the only two shootings at the club since the beginning of 2016.

The family of Ronald Livings hopes that police can figure out who is responsible for his death.

"We're going to let Beaumont PD do their investigation and do their job. All we're here for is for our family and loved ones to come morally support us and be there for us," Britton Holt, Livings’ brother said at a candlelight vigil on Sunday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Beaumont Police Department or call Southeast Texas Crimestoppers at (409) 833-TIPS.
