Level Nightclub liquor license canceled following deadly January shooting

LUBBOCK, Texas -

A Lubbock nightclub has lost its license to sell alcohol after the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission investigation of a deadly shooting on New Year's Day that left two people dead.

The owners of Level Nightclub have agreed to the cancellation of their permit, according to TABC. According to police, two people were shot following an altercation inside the club. Both victims died from their injuries.

TABC initially suspended the club’s liquor license for seven days immediately following the shooting, with a longer 90-day suspension beginning on Jan. 10. The latest action permanently cancels the club’s liquor license, denying its ability to sell alcoholic beverages. It is unknown if the club will re-open.

 “TABC’s first responsibility is to ensure public safety, and we will take strong action to ensure that any business licensed by the agency does not present a threat to the health and well-being of its community,” TABC Executive Director Bentley Nettles said. “This agency is committed to working with our alcohol retailers and our local public safety partners to help keep our neighborhoods safe for all Texans.”
