BATON ROUGE — Club Dior, the site of a mass shooting January 22 that left 12 people injured, has surrendered its state alcohol permit, the Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control confirms to Unfiltered with Kiran.
The Baton Rouge nightclub, located on Bennington Ave., had its liquor license suspended on January 24, two days following the bloody shootout.
An emergency hearing was set for Thursday, but the decision by the owners to relinquish their license means they have decided not to contest the charges. ATC says the club’s owners surrendered the alcohol license on January 31.
The shooting happened during an advertised LSU and Southern University back to school party. Of the 12 people shot, at least three were rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Officials said the victims ages range from 18 to mid 20s. It’s unclear if those under 21 were served alcohol.
ATC Commissioner Ernest Legier also issued an emergency suspension of the liquor license for Reggie’s in Tigerland on the same day Club Dior’s license was suspended.
Reggie’s was facing criticism after 19-year-old Madison Brooks was allegedly raped after a night out at the bar. Her blood alcohol content was nearly four times the legal limit.
