CHICAGO (CBS)–A popular River North night club has been shut down less than a week after a bouncer was shot and killed.
Chicago police taped a notice this week on the door of the club at 226 W. Ontario St. ordering it closed.
Police say the club is a public safety threat because last Friday’s shooting was connected to employees and patrons.
Two people were shot–one fatally–outside the club after a fight broke out in the early-morning hours of March 8.
A 58-year-old man associated with the club was wounded and a 28-year-old bouncer, Thurman Bailey, was killed.
Bailey’s mother said her son was shot by someone who was turned away at the door.
