The manager of the Fat Kat lounge is calling it quits after intense scrutiny following a fatal shooting at the Fat Kat night club on the Westside.
A manager tells our news partner Action news the club is shutting down for good.
"We have no choice right now but to shut our doors. The 30 people who I've employed are no longer employed, " said Eddie Kane.
A gunman opened fire at the club last month sending four people to the hospital with injuries and ending the life of a local man. Kane says after all of the negative publicity and media attention club owners felt they had no other option.
"We're talking about 700-800 people every Friday night faithfully for the last 3 years. Then after this incident you go from 700 to 20 people that's a hurt."
Sheriff Rutherford says similar incidents happen across the city, so shutting the club down in his opinion, is not the solution.
"We had a murder at Mascaras...the same situation. That's why their having closed is not going to change anything. Enhance the club experience with increased safety."
