UPDATED: 2 Injured in Shooting Outside Club 101

No arrests made as of early Friday morning, but investigation continues.


Two men were injured in a shooting outside a busy nightclub in San Rafael early Friday morning, according to a San Rafael Police lieutenant.

Police responded to the shooting at Club 101, at 815 Francisco Blvd. West, at about 12:45 a.m., according to San Rafael police Lt. Dan Fink.

Based on the initial police investigation, a physical altercation occurred among patrons inside the nightclub and spilled out into the club's parking lot, Fink said.

When police arrived at the nightclub, two people were found with gunshot wounds. They were transported to Marin General Hospital with injuries not considered to be life threatening, Fink said.

Officers reported a crowd of possibly more than 100 people in the club's parking lot.

Fink told the Marin Independent Journal officers recovered multiple firearms at the crime scene.

Police also detained two people for unrelated violations, Fink said.

Maurice Kirkpatrick, a 23-year-old from Oakland, was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed and loaded weapon and booked in lieu of $716. Lemar Durell Dean, 27, of Richmond, was arrested on the same charges, in addition to charges of being a felon or addict in possession of a firearm, and was booked into the Marin County Jail in lieu of $20,000.

Police also arrested Oakland resident Mario Antoine Williams, who listed his occupation as “home care” in the booking log, on charges of being a violent felon in possession of body armor. He was booked into the Marin County Jail in lieu of $140,000.

Investigators are interviewing witnesses but have not made arrests in connection to the shooting, according to Fink.

Police authorities from Fairfax, Sausalito, Twin Cities, Novato, Mill Valley and the Marin County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene, according to the San Rafael Police. 

The San Rafael investigations unit is processing evidence and investigating the case. The Novato Police Department loaned two officers and crime surveying equipment to the investigation. 

San Rafael Police spokesperson Margo Rohrbacher told Patch it doesn’t appear the shooting was related to the Nov. 13 shooting in downtown San Rafael when a man was shot in the back and two suspects were arrested.

Police don’t know if the recent Club 101 shooting has a gang component, Rohrbacher said.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, call 485-3000.

Define "Unrelated violations". How about test the hands of the 3 arrested (yes 3 not two) for GSR. Unrelated violations would be better defined as; one was caught with invalid registration, one picking a california poppy, and one jay walking! According to the IJ "Following the fight in the club and "while in the parking lot, an unknown number of shots were fired and the two victims were hit with gunfire," Fink noted. "Officers recovered multiple firearms at the crime scene." The two men arrested on suspicion of having loaded guns were identified as Maurice Kirkpatrick, 23, of Oakland, and Lamar Dean, 27, of Richmond. In addition, police arrested Mario Antoine Williams, 21, on suspicion of a being a violent felon in possession of body armor. Williams was held in lieu of $140,00o bail. Bail was set at $20,000 for Dean and $716 for Kirkpastrick."

Club 101 neeeds to be shut down as a public nuisance. It has evolved into a magnet for Richmond & Oakland gangbangers and their sluts. When that location was a gay bar there was none of this violence.

They should close the 101 club

the amount of violence in San Rafael is appauling and seems to be getting worse every week. Wondering when law abiding citizens are going to notice this and start having town halls about ways to get it out of our city-this is not mini richmond or mini mexico--What does SRPD need from us to clean this mess up? is it more officers? is it a more cohesive and aggressive anti-crime initiative?
tom martell November 23, 2012 at 09:05 PM
we should have more police harassing homeless people and setting up faux drunk stops and leave those law abiding gang members alone
Gigi Cruz November 23, 2012 at 10:57 PM
Totally agree with you!
Gigi Cruz November 23, 2012 at 10:59 PM
They should have more security and check for guns for people that come into the club or shut it down!
Novatan November 23, 2012 at 11:17 PM
$716? Jeeze, I had to pay more than that for parking in a loading zone!
Julie Beach November 24, 2012 at 02:12 AM
I didnt see the $716 but u r right..like that.s a punishing amount for probaby a bunch of meth dealers from richmond.vallejo and oakland making zillions selling to their own homies in the hood.
Renee November 24, 2012 at 03:00 AM
Miss Beach, what exactly are you referring to when you make statements like"mini Richmond or mini Mexico" please be more specific??
mike jones November 24, 2012 at 04:17 PM
Renee wake up you freak what do you think she is talking about go live on rochmond or mexico then figure it out.
M Polizzotti November 24, 2012 at 07:39 PM
Nice...mike and julie represent that neocon racist chic well. But be careful you 2, its the gateway drug to hatred and fear (and it makes you sound dumb).
Ryan Ricco-Pena November 24, 2012 at 10:53 PM
I agree with M Polizzotti, enough with the racist comments from Julie and mike. You are the type of people that demonstrate the worst of America. If it were still socially acceptable you'd be running around with white hoods on.
diane November 25, 2012 at 03:30 PM
Julie, I totally agree!! I've lived here for 40 years and have seen our town change! And change for the worst! I use to write to the IJ, and complain to the City Council and Police Dept for 20 years, after seeing a man shot on Lincoln ave. in the late 80's. Even then, the police Dept said "unusual isolated incidents" which included a rape of the owner of Perry's deli that week. So they let it go and now it's gangland. And to Renee, you know exactly what "Miss Beach" is referring to with your holier than thou attempt to be "politically correct" statement. From someone who moved here when a bicycle theft or domestic dispute was the worse you read about in the police reports, I am appalled at what I see now.
diane November 25, 2012 at 03:38 PM
To those who think Mike and Julie are racist....I think Mike and Julie want to live somewhere where they can feel safe. For anyone who lives in Central San Rafael or "Southern" San Rafael, this is not the case anymore. Everywhere we frequent for shopping, banking, or otherwise, we have to worry about getting hit by a random bullet.

Looks like y'all need a reminder to not make personal attacks in commenting threads. Please be respectful, even if you don't see eye to eye. Otherwise i'll start deleting comments and warning users that they will be suspended.

Really what we could do it set up some kind group or agency that would enforce laws and make sure that those who broke them would be prosecuted accordingly. At the same time, citizens would be responisble for abiding those laws while living within this community. Those who do the crime do the time. Of course laws are subject to review and endorcement from some kind of governing body. If someone is in fact innocent of the crime, it would be up to those who enforce those laws to prove that the law was in fact broken. I wonder why we don't just do this in the first place?
