Hookah Lounge Shooting

According to authorities, he is accused of carrying out the shooting at Melody Hookah Lounge near Virginia Tech’s campus shortly before midnight on Friday.

The suspect faces six felony charges, including murder, for allegedly killing 18-year-old Isiah Robinson.

The teen was a student at Patrick Henry High School in Roanoke, WDBJ reported.

One of the four surviving victims is a Virginia Tech student recovering from his wounds on Saturday, the university announced.

“We have been in contact with his family, and they report their son is out of surgery, recovering, and seems to be doing well,” the school said in a message posted on its website.

Friday night’s violence erupted after the hookah bar hosted a private event from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.

It was unclear what sparked the gunfire.

Flint is also facing four counts of attempted murder and one count of firearm use, police said.
