Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019
AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- A club that was the site of a recent double homicide in Augusta did not receive the chance for approval by the Augusta-Richmond County Commission for an additional business license.
Right now, the club operates with standard business licenses and an alcohol license.
On Tuesday, the club was set to be formally approved or denied for a dance license. However, in order to receive that license, the business is subject to an audit of incidents at the club by the Richmond County Sheriff's Office and code violations by the city's Planning and Development department.
Initially, Planning and Development and the Richmond County Sheriff's Office approved the club's application to add a dance license. Therefore, is was going before the committee meeting today to get further approval. But, the city deleted the request for Tuesday's approval from the agenda.
The investigation into the double shooting is ongoing and investigators are currently following other leads.
