P.G. police close club after fatal drive-by shooting
Question of the Day
Prince George’s County officials have shuttered a Capitol Heights nightclub where a 20-year-old girl was killed in a drive-by shooting this week, police said Wednesday.
MSG, or Music Sports and Games, was closed on Monday under a new law that enables a county-wide crack down on nightclubs, said Maj. George Nader, a commander of the police district that includes the club. Four people, including the club’s owner, managers and staff, have also been charged with the misdemeanor offense of operating a dance hall without a license, police said.
“The establishment now has to go before the board to get their license back,” Maj. Nader said.
Two people were shot outside the club early Monday, police said.
Jasmine Jerona Banks, of the 6500 block of Insey Street in District Heights, died from her injuries Tuesday. A man who was struck by gunfire was treated for not-life threatening injuries.
“I’m pleased to see that we have begun to take action from this legislation,” said Karen Toles, the County Council member who sponsored the nightclub legislation.
