TABC issues 7-day suspension of Level Nightclub following deadly shooting

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

A nightclub in the Depot District is now on a seven-day suspension following a deadly shooting on New Year's Eve

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission issued the suspension Thursday, stating the suspension was requested by the Lubbock Police Department after the double homicide at Level Nightclub early Wednesday morning. 

According to TABC, the suspension temporarily prohibits all alcohol sales at the club and will effectively close the business until Jan. 7. 

TABC issued the following statement Thursday afternoon: 

Section 11.61(d) of the Alcoholic Beverage Code authorizes TABC to suspend an alcohol retailer's permit without a hearing for up to seven days in order to investigate shootings, stabbings, or murders at the business which are deemed likely to result in further violence. The suspension allows TABC and local investigators to safely investigate the scene of the incident without fear of retaliation or additional violence.

TABC will continue to work with local investigators on the case. Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact the Lubbock Police Department or TABC at (888)THE-TABC.
