The shooting happened at the Velvet Room club located on Chamblee-Tucker Road in DeKalb County, during an album release party for rapper Rick Ross.

According to DeKalb police, the shooting happened at around 3 a.m. after a dispute between Robinson who was working as a DJ at the party and another man in the club's back parking lot.
