A large party at the 428 Club on Martin Luther King Drive in Commerce ended with gunfire about 4 a.m. Sunday. Commerce Police Chief Kerry Crews said officers were already in the area waiting for the party to break up when there were a number of shots fired.

“At this time, we have not been able to identify who the suspect or suspects are,” Crews said. “Commerce police detectives and Texas Rangers are investigaing the incident.”
