Columbia Closes Bar Where They Say Gangs Gather

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Columbia officials have closed a bar the sheriff says a gang has used as a hangout.
    
The State newspaper reported (http://bit.ly/HUJ88J ) that city officials moved in on the bar formerly known as The Library around 1 a.m. Sunday and closed it because they say it was operating without a permit.
    
Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins says the club was serving alcohol, a DJ was playing music and a doorman was selling tickets.
    
Jenkins says the bar no longer uses The Library name and signs with the name have been removed. He says since the name has changed, the business license is no longer valid.
    
The Library owner Justin Kershner told the newspaper the club was closed.
    
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says The Library is a hangout for a street gang.
