On Friday, May 20, 2022, a shooting occurred at the Blue Flame Lounge located at 3606 E. Highland Avenue, unit 102, which was operating as an illegal bar and restaurant. Numerous partygoers, including several young adults and juveniles, were present. As a result of a large crowd of partygoers attending the event, many people were inside the building and loitering outside.

A verbal altercation between two individuals inside of the Blue Flame led to a firearm being discharged. This led to an exchange of gunfire between multiple individuals, both inside and outside of the building.

Due to the exchange of gunfire, Allen Gresham was struck by gunfire and succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Detectives have identified several victims of the shooting that night, including a 12-year-old juvenile.

During the investigation, detectives located several items of critical evidence and interviewed numerous witnesses. However, the San Bernardino Police Department is seeking public assistance in locating any additional witnesses who were present at the event.

Additionally, it is believed that several other victims were injured during the incident, and the San Bernardino Police Department is urging them to contact investigators.

Any assistance that members of the public can provide would be greatly appreciated by investigating detectives and the family members of the involved victims.
