Raleigh to Look at Entertainment Permits At Night Clubs

Posted July 11, 2007 6:55 a.m. EDT

— A shooting at a Raleigh night club is prompting officials to evaluate the some of the city's night spots.

Tyrone Robert Convington was shot and killed June 25 outside Club Black Tie, located at 3201 New Bern Ave. A second man, Kurtis Michael Richard LeDue, was treated at WakeMed for non-life-threatening injuries.

In the wake of that shooting, the city is reviewing all entertainment permits. Council member Philip Isley wants to know if there are any outstanding violations.

City leaders said if there are violations, the club's permits could be revoked, effectively shutting down an establishment.
