FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — State officials have revoked the liquor license of a Fayetteville nightclub, citing the killing of a man during a robbery in the club's parking lot last month and other violent crimes.
The Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission said it warned Chief's 25 Plus on June 12 that it needed to supervise its parking lot better to protect its customers. Police say on Aug. 30 a man died after he was hit in the chest by a stray bullet after shots were fired during a robbery.
Commissioners also cited a stabbing and shooting in the parking lot this year in their decision.
Police say officers have been called to the club nearly 200 times since the start of 2009 for assaults, thefts, robberies, sexual assaults and other crimes.
