UPDATED September 11th, 2014


On September 11th, 2011 Twenty four people were shot a the Club Elite in Palmetto Fl, two died including drug dealer Trayon Goff who appears to have been the target of the attempted massacre, there were at least 160 people inside and outside the club when the shooting started, to this day no one has come forward to help Police ID the shooters, “NO SNITCHIN”. Police records show the club at 704 10th St. W. had been the scene of several other violent incidents before at least two gunmen opened fire on a crowd there Saturday September 11th, 2011, see http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/20110913/BREAKING/110919867?p=3&tc=pg


REWARD for information about who carried out the mass shooting at Club Elite has grown to $20,000.

TRAYON GOFF (on L) AND HIS BROTHER LOUIS GOOF Jr (on R) APPEAR TO BE VIOLENT DRUG DEALERS…POLICE Investigators are trying to determine whether there may be a connection with a shooting in the parking of Groover’s Market in Palmetto on Jan. 15 2011 to the attempted massacre at Club Elite. Trayon’s brother, Louis Goff Jr., 21, was charged with attempted murder in that case at Grover’s Market. Prosecutors later dropped the charge, however, because some witnesses changed or recanted their accounts of what happened (NO SNITCHIN) and because of concerns that the wounded man may have fired a weapon first. One witness reportedly said Trayon Goff may have been present with friends during that incident. In April 2011, after the attempted murder charge was dropped, Louis Goff Jr. was shot in the head on the DeSoto Bridge over the Manatee River. He recovered. Police are uncertain whether that shooting may have been linked to what happened at Groover’s Market. No one has been arrested in the April shooting, see http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/20110913/BREAKING/110919867?p=3&tc=pg


UPDATE Sept 11 2014 : To the upset caller and her gal pals on Facebook who takes offense to my posting this article with the “NO SNITCHIN” phioto, If you don’t want to be shot stay out of violent Hip Hop Clubs like Club Elite, you could better off spend your time helping the Police ID the shooters at Club Elite on September 11th, 2011. . The Club Elite attempted massacre made news even in New York City due to the extreme violence and use of a AK-47 and no witnesses have ever came forward to name the shooters, “NO  SNITCHIN”.


NY DAILY NEWS…….Two people were killed and at least 22 were wounded when two gunmen opened fire outside a Florida nightclub early Saturday morning, police said. Trayon Goff, 25, of Palmetto, was killed while he was sitting against a wall outside, police said. Palmetto police said the shooters were outside Club Elite in Palmetto, Fla., but some of the bullets pierced the front door, hitting partygoers inside. Six people who were seriously injured were flown to a hospital in St. Petersburg, and two were reported to be in critical condition. The other 16 wounded were taken to a local hospital for treatment, police said. Fifteen were released on Saturday and one victim was admitted with non-life threatening injuries, according to the Tampa Tribune. Police have visited the club dozens of times this year, the Tribune said.

IT IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THESE HEAVILY ARMED “BLACK THUGS”  SHOOT IT OUT WITH THE COPS IN THE SARASOTA-BRADENTON-PALMETTO FL AREA, IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED IN THE TAMPA- ST PETE AREA WITH 5 COPS KILLED IN THE LAST YEAR BY “BLACK THUGS”.  SEE ARTICLE OF February 23, 2011 by pibillwarner in crime and terrorism… Joe Waller and Uhurus (Black Panthers) call for “Open Season” on Cops In the St Pete Tampa Fl area five (5) Police officers have been killed by Black Thugs.

7.62x39mm Cartridge used by AK-47 and the SKS assault rifle.

Witnesses say two men trained their fire on 25-year-old Trayon Goff as he stood near Club Elite’s front doors. But bullets struck others outside or pierced the doors and walls to ricochet through the cramped bar (high powered Ak-47 rounds aired out Club Elite). Inside, people had nowhere to go. Some dove to the ground or hid behind the bar or each other as bullets whizzed past, said Chip ‘Blu Chip’ Hunt, a promoter who works with the club management.


“You just hit the ground and hope that it doesn’t hit you,” he said. “You only get a split second to think. You’re in survival mode.” Sarasota resident Latoya Wright, 34, said people began running and screaming as shooting began. “I hadn’t been there any more than 15 or 20 minutes, and then shots rang out,” Wright said. “When the screaming was done, everybody was all laid out and two of them were dead.” The shooting seemed like it went on forever, Hunt said. When it abruptly stopped, he heard screams and saw people on the floor. The shooting claimed two lives in all, while leaving 22 others wounded.
