City Pulls Clubs License after Shootings

By  | 

MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) -- The City of Muskegon has pulled the business license for a social club where three people were killed and several were more hurt in a shooting.

WOOD-TV reports the city in its decision in part cited a memo from Muskegon police, noting other problems at the Charity Lodge. The memo says there's been "a pattern of violent crime" there since 2010 ahead of the early Sept. 22 shooting.

A 20-year-old man has been charged with lying to police investigating the shooting. No one has been charged with the deaths. The social club, also known by its former Elks Charity Lodge name, has been closed since the shooting. Its liquor license already was revoked by the state.

A telephone number for the lodge rang to a different listing early Wednesday.
