LPD forces Depot District bar to temporarily close

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Kluzo's misses out on a busy weekend of business on LPD's order. The Depot District club's been the site of multiple reports to police over the past few months. There’s been 20 calls since the beginning of the year at Kluzo’s alone including fights, assaults, shots fired, and theft. 

"We've had some shootings, we've had some fights, we've had a lot of issues like that public drunkenness," said Lubbock police chief Greg Stevens. "It's centered around just a couple of establishments and one of them has been Kluzos." 

Police used a city of Lubbock ordinance to close the business this past weekend. A drive-by outside the club forced the department’s hand only one of many incidents over several years. That code gives the chief and other officers the authority to close places of public resort in order to protect the peace. Stevens said it is not a long term fix, the business owner is free to open back up. Stevens said he hopes to send a strong message to the business owner. 

"We want the owner to reach out to the police department," said Stevens. "We want to develop a good relationship so that we can help them to have a better more safe environment both inside and outside the club." 

Stevens said he is planning to meet with the Kluzo's owner this week to  come up with a strategic plan to help them have a safe business for their employees,  patrons, and the businesses around them.
