AKRON, Ohio - An Akron woman is calling for justice after her husband was shot to death inside an Akron nightclub late Monday night.
LeTeash Price said her husband of five years, Rahsaan Price, 38, was wearing headsets and editing a music video when he was shot inside Al C. Sanders, also known as Embassy Lounge, on Romig Road in Akron.
The Summit County Medical Examiner said Price died from a gunshot wound to the neck and the case was ruled a homicide.
"If I could just go back into my bed, open my eyes back up, and it be all a dream, that would be OK with me because he'd still be here," Price said.
Police said Dontay Taylor, 22, was refused entry into the nightclub and then fired several shots through the windows, killing Price and injuring Lamar Fitzgerald, 28, and Deanna May, 25.
As of Tuesday afternoon, Fitzgerald was in serious condition at Akron General Hospital. May was discharged Tuesday afternoon from the same hospital.
Taylor is considered armed and extremely dangerous, police said.
On Tuesday, LeTeash Price was urging the public to provide information to police on Taylor's whereabouts.
"If it were you in our situation, you would want justice to be served and you would want to know who killed your family member," she explained.
LeTeash Price said Rahsaan loved technology and photography, owned his own music video production company, but was a father first. He leaves behind two boys, ages 6 and 15, and two girls, ages 15 and 17.
"He loved his kids and if he could have given them the world, he would have," she said.
LeTeash said Rahsaan's half brother, Wes Turner, owns the nightclub, but Rahsaan wasn't there as part of the "club scene." He came to the bar to work on one of his video projects.
"I never thought a day in my life that I would be getting ready to make funeral arrangements for him," LeTeash Price said, as tears flowed.
Rahsaan's mother, Dr. Deborah Price, said her son would never hurt anyone and always tried to help others. He was preparing to move his daughter to North Carolina to begin her college career.
"When you raise a child, you expect to outlive your child. There's too much dying going on in our communities and we need to speak up," Dr. Price said.
Akron Police Lt. Rick Edwards said the nightclub often hires officers to work security detail, but there weren't any officers working at the bar Monday night.
Edwards said there have been 23 calls for service at the nightclub this year. Most of the calls were for fights, disorderly conduct and intoxication, but there was one "minor stabbing."
The landlord of the shopping center complex where the nightclub is located declined comment on Tuesday.
Anyone with information on Taylor is encouraged to call the Akron Police Detective Bureau at 330-375-2490, the U.S. Marshals Service at 1-866-4-WANTED, or Summit County Crimestoppers at 330-434-COPS.
