The witness, Andre Murphy, said a man burst out of the Blak and Bloo nightclub on Sunset Boulevard in the early hours of Nov.

Its Boogie Lounge was considered among the outstanding alternative clubs in Los Angeles, a Thursday night mecca for those seeking a heavy bass beat.

A nightclub bouncer was acquitted of murder Wednesday in the deaths of two men he shot outside the Blak and Bloo club in Hollywood. Attorneys for Roman Paul Luisi, 24, said he shot Eric Pierce, 25, and Adrian Thames, 23, in self-defense because he feared that the men--patrons he had thrown out of the nightspot a short time earlier--had returned to kill him. Police said the trouble at the now-closed Blak and Bloo began about 2 a.m. on Nov.

An emotional, racially tinged confrontation between a murder victim's family and a prominent defense attorney erupted at the Criminal Courts Building on Friday after the lawyer assured a judge that he would like hearing the case against the accused killer because it might be fun. The comment, made in open court by Leslie H. Abramson, was heard by the family of Adrian Thames, who along with another man was shot to death last November in front of a Hollywood nightclub.
