A confrontation between an employee at a Metairie strip club and a Kenner man who authorities say may have been a patron ended in gunfire early Thursday morning, with one of the men fatally shot. Michael Rivera, 33, died of his injuries, and Byron Franklin, 29, a Metairie man who worked at the club, was arrested and booked with second-degree murder, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office investigators say a fight between two men outside of Cabaret Nola in Metairie early Thursday, Oct. 7, 2021, ended in gunfire with one dead and the other booked with murder. The shooting occurred about 2:30 a.m. outside Cabaret NOLA at 3229 Lisa Drive, a Sheriff's Office report said. Authorities did not say what sparked the disagreement between Franklin and Rivera. "It began as a disturbance between the two," said Capt. Jason Rivarde, a Sheriff's Office spokesperson. "At some point during the fight, [Franklin] pulled out a gun and shot the victim."
