"The management team of Visions would like to express our most sincere apologies to the residents and business owners in the Chapel Hill community for the unfortunate incident that occurred at Visions Nite Club on September 30, 2007. We would like to assure everyone that this was an isolated incident and we are taking proactive measures to ensure the safety, integrity and well being of the Chapel Hill community. It was always our goal to provide a comfortable, secure entertainment venue for all to enjoy and while we realize that we cannot control the actions of all patrons, please be assured that we do not in any way condone or encourage any acts of violence in or around our establishment.
"We are conducting a complete review of the incident and based on our current assessment we feel that it is best that we permanently close Visions Nite Club, effective immediately. We appreciate the time and consideration given to us by the Chapel Hill Police Department, town officials and local leaders."
