LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Lansing City Council voted Monday to revoke the Energy Event Center’s cabaret license by a vote of five to three.

This comes after a case that started back in late July when five people were shot and injured, two critically, at a concert that took place on the property.

There was a public hearing on Aug. 24 where the city and Cabell laid out their arguments.

The city made the decision to revoke the license at their meeting on Sept. 18.
