Meeting Saturday to tackle teen violence

Meeting Saturday to tackle teen violence

LUBBOCK -

Level nightclub's suspension ends Tuesday. The club is where someone shot and killed two people, including a teenager, on New Year's Day morning.

The TABC suspended the club's license so investigators could search the scene for clues. Police have not yet announced any leads.

In response, on Saturday, Jan. 11, a group of activists will brainstorm ways to slow the stem of teen violence in our area. 

Stephen Sanders says they are looking for mentors to inspire teens away from violence.

"These kids are important and special, and I love each and every one of those kids and they deserve a life," Sanders said.

"They deserve to live. They deserve to have parents, and...and, those kids are going to miss prom and all these other things in life that are going to happen. They're not going to have kids. They're not going to do anything. They're going to be remembered as being murdered...and I just, I just hate that."

The group wants to figure out ways for agencies to crack down on clubs that do not do enough to stop kids from getting inside.

The meeting will be Saturday, Jan. 11, 2020 at 3 p.m. at the Market Street at 50th and Indiana.
