WASHINGTON (AP) — A D.C. nightclub that was closed by police after a man died in an incident involving the bar’s co-owner and four others is set to reopen.

Cynthia Simms, a spokeswoman for the governing board of the city’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration, said the board voted unanimously Wednesday to allow the club to reopen Dec. 15 under several conditions. One condition is that the club cannot employ the co-owner or any of the other four men.

The northwest Washington club was shut down after the Oct. 15 death of a man who had been chased by the five men after throwing at least one brick through the club’s front window. The men were initially charged with second-degree murder, but authorities later dismissed the charges because the cause and manner of the man’s death had not been determined.
