Prince George's prosecutors say violations of the county's dance-hall law remain prevalent, despite a crackdown that resulted in guilty pleas Wednesday from the first club operators charged under the new statute.
Two operators of a Capitol Heights-area nightclub that was the site of a deadly drive-by shooting are expected to plead guilty Wednesday to violating Prince George's County's newly enacted law governing dance halls, prosecutors said.
Two people were shot early Monday in a drive-by shooting outside a Capitol Heights nightclub, police and a manager of the venue said.
"I'm glad to have it behind me," Mr. Pickens said as he left the courthouse.
About a dozen people were denied entry to MSG that night after officers working at the event advised MSG doormen that the people were tied to or suspected of violent incidents at other area nightclubs, Mr. Pickens said.
