ABC Permit Suspended After Shooting Inside Charlotte Club

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A shooting inside Club Lust last Sunday resulted in the immediate suspension of the alcohol permits held by the club.

Officials say the club received temporary ABC permits on May 1, 2015, and has held its current ABC permits since December 8, 2015.

CMPD says that a security guard at the club allegedly fired the gun that resulted in the death of a club patron.

Officials say the club has experienced a pattern of violence in the past 12 months, including multiple incidents of assault and a rape, according to law enforcement reports.

Police say the summary suspension is immediate and is in effect until the case is heard by the Office of Administrative Hearings.

Authorities say 34-year-old Gregory Spearman was pronounced dead inside the club.
