“The client that had rented it out was having a showcase of talent, I guess, musical talent,” he said.

“They were having different performers at different times through the night.”

Smith said 250 people were expected at the party, but only 75 showed up. At the time of the shooting about three dozen stragglers remained.

Pulse Events Center, 6903 Roxbury, near Northwest Expressway and Wilshire Boulevard, was opened about three years ago as an events center for teenagers, but now also hosts weddings, banquets and other private parties.

The center is at the end of a strip mall and features a large banquet-style room inside, with a dance floor, snack bar, lounging area and game room.
