Chicago police shut down Sound-Bar after fatal shooting
CHICAGO — Chicago police have temporarily shut a popular Chicago nightclub following a shooting last week that left an employee dead and another man wounded.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the owners of Sound-Bar are working with police and city officials “to develop an appropriate public safety plan.”
Under the ordinance a business deemed a threat to public safety can be closed until the owner takes steps to protect the employees, patrons and members of the public from harm.
A brawl early Friday involving about 15 people ended when a man pulled a gun and fired several shots outside Sound-Bar, fatally wounding 28-year-old Thurman Bailey and a 58-year-old man. Police say Bailey worked at the nightclub and the 58-year-old was associated with the business.
