JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - After a shooting at the Fat Kat Lounge early Sunday morning that left four injured and one dead, residents of the Murray Hill area say they're tired of the violence.
Roy Graham says he's lived in the neighborhood for the past two years and says the popular nightclub is a trouble spot.
"It's about the third or fourth time it happens," said Graham.
"It's pretty jammed up here in these parking spaces in the evening," said Darlene Sellers, another neighbor.
Residents agree something must be done so this doesn't happen again. It's an opinion shared by city councilman Jim Love, who lives in the area. He says he's taking action to prevent more violence from erupting in Murray Hill.
"Certainly we are going to make sure they've met all of the requirements of the law. Whether it be fire code, did they have too many people in there? Were they serving alcohol after 2 a.m.? That's something to take a look at," said Love.
Love says he has already contacted State Attorney Angela Corey and Sheriff John Rutherford to brainstorm ways to end the violence.
Love said he plans on calling the owners of the building to ask for their help.
Next Thursday members of the Murray Hill Preservation Association will hold their monthly meeting. Business owners on Edgewood Avenue said they plan on bringing up the violence at Fat Kat Lounge.
