Money Clip D dies in nightclub shooting.
Dominic Levar Brown, who as Money Clip D was a key assistant and friend to Houston rapper Trae, was shot and killed outside a southwest-side after-hours nightclub early Friday morning, police say.

Brown, 34, was outside Breakers in the 9600 block of Bissonnet when he was shot about 5:30 a.m., HPD says.

There had been a fight earlier in the nightclub, but it is not known if the shooting was related.

Trae tweeted: "Me and My Brother Always Been Side By Side ...Win, Lose or Draw Against Whateva" and "Hardest Thing I've Dealt With Today Was Sittin My Sons Down To Explain They Uncle Won't Be Comin Back Home ..," followed by "Watchin My Lil Niggas Try To Be Strong and Not Cry In Front Of They Daddy Is Painfull."

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call HPD's homicide division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

Update:

HPD has released its official version of events:

Mr. Brown and his friends were visiting an after-hours bar, "Breakers," at the above address, when an argument occured between two groups of people. The argument continued into the parking lot where gunshots were exchanged between the two groups. Brown and his friends were not involved in the altercation and remained inside, not hearing the gunshots that took place outside. When the bar closed at 5:30 a.m., Brown left and seated himself in his car, speaking to two females outside his driver's side window. While speaking to the females, an unknown black male began shooting at Brown's car, striking Brown. The suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction.
