(Newser) – An altercation outside a nightclub in suburban Phoenix erupted in shooting, leaving 13 people wounded and two in serious condition. Police are looking for two young men as possible suspects. Tempe Sgt. Steve Carbajal said they fled after the shooting, which occurred shortly before midnight in the parking lot of The Clubhouse Music Venue. At least two were hospitalized in serious condition, while the others were treated for wounds that appeared less severe.

He said some of the injured drove themselves to the various hospitals so police aren't sure if there were other victims besides the 13. Carbajal described the shooting as the result of "some sort of altercation" at the club, where a rap concert was going on. Police didn't have immediate details on the disturbance.

‘You Get What You Deserve, White Boy’: 13-Year-Old Set on Fire in Horrific Racially Charged Attack Police in Kansas City are investigating a possible hate crime after a 13-year-old boy was doused in gasoline and set on fire. According to Allen Goin’s mother, the attack occurred just as her son was getting home from school. She said, “They rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open…one of them poured gasoline, then flicked the Bic and said, ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve white boy.’” The police say the boy was engulfed in a “large fireball,” but was able to beat out the flames to call 911 and his father. In addition to suffering first degree burns, he has lost his eyebrows, eyelashes, and part of the skin on his face. There is also long-term concern about his eyes and lungs. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/you-get-what-you-deserve-white-boy-13-year-old-set-on-fire-in-horrific-racially-charged-attack/
