Lansing city council's Public Safety Committee got a look at what appears to be a crime being committed. Lansing police played video caught by a surveillance camera of a shooting in the midst of an unruly crowd early last Sunday.

The crowd got out of hand after leaving the Venue nightclub in the 6800 block of South Cedar Street.

While police tried to disperse the crowd a gun was fired. A victim wasn't found at the scene, but a 21 year old man with a bullet wound to the buttocks showed up at a Lansing hospital emergency room a short time later.

Because of the video evidence and continuing police attention to the night club, the Public Safety Committee has scheduled a special meeting this Friday to discuss the possibility of closing the club.

    I think they should definitely close the club. True patrons will find somewhere else to cause violence, but the management staff has had nothing but bad luck since the opening of this club. Innocent people could get hurt and its going to affect surrounding businesses as well. The southside of Lansing is rowdy enough without adding more drama to its night life. CLOSE THE VENUE!!!

    Insane....another shooting like we are surprised by this. Who cares if closing this place will move the violence some where else. There are many children who live close by to this place. Time to wake up Lansing and try to get a grip on this place you call a city.

    Close the club and the masses just move to another location. Hire some security guards, install more cameras - all part of running a business in south lansing....

    Closing the club is not going to stop the violence they will just find someplace else to go.
