A representative of the rap group Wu-Tang Clan said Tuesday that none of the band's members performed at a Century City nightclub before a fatal shooting nearby early Monday. "The group was never booked and never performed," said Tresa Sanders of Loud Records, speaking in New York for the group. "In fact, no member of the group was in Los Angeles at the time. It is defamatory to the group to report otherwise."
