HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) - Neighbors desperate to shut down a Huber Heights nightclub are taking their fight to court.
2 NEWS has learned that the city's attorney did not file a nuisance complaint Monday, but plans to do so first thing Tuesday morning. A judge can then decide to shut down the club until a hearing is held.
It would be welcome news for the people planning on showing up Monday night at the council meeting to talk about closing down the club.
Two people died in a parking lot shoot out at the club Saturday night.
Flowers and balloons still sit outside the door. They're a sharp contrast to the broken glass and shattered peace that neighbors blame on the club.
Efforts have been underway to close the club since it opened about three years ago, but they took on a new tone following Saturday's shooting that killed Charles Bell III, 25, and Keenan Hall, 20. A third person was injured.
"They're shooting and spraying and there's no security. It's crazy. It's crazy," a 911 caller told dispatchers.
Police tell 2 NEWS they'll answer questions about the shooting at Monday night's meeting.
No arrests have been made so far.
The chief says the shooting started as a fight inside the club that spilled outside.
Neighbors think the club has run out of second chances. "With all the violence they had at that place you think they would close that up a long time ago," said John Rogers, Huber Heights resident.
Some think the club should have already lost its liquor license, but a state commission ruled against that.
We found the Ohio Division of Liquor Control ruled against renewing the club's liquor license only to have the Liquor Control Commission overrule that decision by a 2-1 vote.
In a statement, it says based on the testimony provided and evidence presented, it reversed the division's order.
We wanted to know how often reversals happen, but the commission's director couldn't say.
Many of the complaints about the club focused on noise and the commissioners didn't feel that was enough, but the city's attorney says the case was strong enough.
"This latest incident will be further evidence that this is an establishment that's not in the city's best interest," he said.
There have been nearly 250 calls for help to police since March 2012 alone.
