Update: Chattanooga Beer Board issues violation to club where Feb. shooting occurred
UPDATE (Thursday, March 21):
The city says a Chattanooga club did not have the correct permit to hold a party, where two men were later shot in the parking lot.
According to the beer board, Celebrities Entertainment Complex, did not have a "special gathering" permit on February 10th. This is the club's second violation.
Vice Chairman of the board, Dan Mayfield, said the club's manager is jeopardizing his business and people's safety by not having the right permits.
"You can't just open it up and say we're having a party like this gentleman did and all of a sudden, hundreds of people show up," Mayfield said after Thursday's board meeting.
"It's dangerous. In this case here, two people were shot and it's a miracle no one was killed."
If the club receives a third violation, the manager, who goes by the name Fresh,will not be able to get a special gathering permit for one year.
Chattanooga Police tell NewsChannel 9 that Celebrities Entertainment has a business license, but lacks a beer permit.
A spokeswoman says the Chattanooga Beer Board is investigating violations of the Special Gathering permit.
