DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - David Lockhart is among those in Huber Heights who signed a petition to shut down the Heat Night Club.
Only he's seen a side of the club many haven't. He used to work security there.
"If the owner would allow them to do their job a little better I'm sure the situation would have never occurred," Lockhart says.
Lockhart says he quit the job a few weeks ago because he feared an incident like the shooting that left two people dead and one injured Saturday morning was going to happen at some point.
He thinks the club's owner shares some of the blame.
"She was in it for the money," Lockhart says. "She didn't really care about safety. She wanted the security to protect her and her family. She didn't care about customers safety."
2 NEWS called the club to talk to the owner about security there but never heard back.
The shooting has made citizens and the city more determined than ever to close the club.
"We're going to do everything we can to ensure this activity doesn't happen anymore," says the city's attorney Mike Bly.
But the city thought it had already put a stop to it, getting the club's liquor license taken away by the state only to have it given back on appeal by the Liquor Control Commission.
2 NEWS called the commission to get an explanation for the decision but didn't get a call back.
The city could once again object to the club's liquor license but even if it goes through this time, it will likely take months to happen.
"There may be other opportunities that the city has to pursue getting rid of the problem," Bly says.
In the meantime, two teens whose parents made them stop going to the club's teen nights came back Sunday to leave behind a memorial for the victims.
They say they didn't know 20-year old Keenan Hall or 25-year old Charles Bell III but were moved enough to do something.
"We felt really bad the people that were killed. We used to come here a lot and we felt bad for the people that were hurt," says Kayla Gipson and Mikayla Strunk.
Neighbors want to make sure it's the last memorial they have to see here.
"We just hope something's done before some other mother has to lose a child," says one neighbor who didn't want to be identified for fear of their safety.
