In the wee hours last Saturday, two people were shot in a parking lot that services Lounge 75, a nightclub located near Public Square. One was 23-year-old Demario Warren, who was killed, and the other a 21-year-old woman who was struck in the ankle. Some reports claimed that the altercation began inside the club and ended in tragedy outside. The same location was linked to a shooting two years ago.

Landlord Dan Dzina told WKYC that he decided to cancel the club's lease. While the club may not have been directly linked to the shooting, the landlord felt it was attracting the wrong crowd.

Located a few hundred feet from Horseshoe Casino, East 4th and Quicken Loans Arena, the club immediately drew the attention of Councilman Joe Cimperman, who vowed to get the liquor license revoked.
