Ali Ahmed Mohammed allegedly tossed a brick through a window of the club, starting the altercation.

The D.C. medical examiner's office originally ruled the death a homicide. The club's owner and four employees were initially charged with murder. Those charges were later reduced to aggravated assault and eventually dismissed when the medical examiner's office could not determine the cause and manner of Mohammed's death.

The story of Ali Ahmed Mohammed's death seemed to polarize parts of the city, with fans of the nightclub expressing support for DC9 and its employees while the city's prominent Ethiopian community decried the attack on one of their own. DCentric spoke with members of the city's Ethiopian community in March to hear their response to Mohammed's death.
