MIDLAND, Tx. (KOSA) — The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission has temporarily suspended the liquor license of Your Place following Sunday’s deadly shooting between motorcycle gangs.
The TABC announced the suspension on Tuesday.
According to their release, Your Place will remain closed until Sunday, February 23 as TABC agents and Midland police investigate the scene.
The TABC says that the suspension was requested by the Midland Police Department.
“The goal of the suspension is to allow TABC agents and local police the opportunity to safely investigate the scene of a deadly incident without fear of retaliation or additional violence,” said TABC Executive Director Bentley Nettles. “TABC’s investigation will seek to determine whether the bar’s actions or policies played any role in the incident. We will also examine the bar’s security policies and procedures to find out whether appropriate steps were taken to ensure guests’ safety.”
The release also states that while Your Place will reopen on the 23 it’s likely that the investigations by the TABC and Midland Police Department will continue for several weeks.
