City shut downs Feltonville club after weekend shootings

    The Felton Supper Club has been shut down once again. Incidents in 2009 and early 2011 resulted in temporary shut-downs, and Sunday morning’s shootings prompted the city to revoke the owners’ licenses.

    Co-owners Omar Infante and Maria Lopez have 10 days to appeal.

    The Daily News reports L&I has revoked the club’s amusement, business-privilege and special assembly occupancy licenses after two gunmen opened fire outside the club and injured nine people.

    Police say the owners have been cooperating with detectives and that it doesn’t appear the shooters were in the Feltonville club at any point that night, but Mayor Michael Nutter’s spokesman, Mark McDonald, said the owners did not warn police in advance of Saturday night’s event, which the club had agreed to do when it last reopened in April.

    The suspects have not yet been caught.
