HATTIESBURG, MISS. (AP) - A Mississippi city has shut down a night club where three University of Southern Mississippi players were shot Sunday.

Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree said Tuesday the city is temporarily suspending the operating license of Remington’s Hunt Club.

Martez Smith, Tim Green and Deddrick Jones were shot in the parking lot early Sunday morning after the club closed. The three players remain hospitalized.

Hattiesburg police have said officers were called to the club 129 times between January and September of this year. No arrests were made as a result of those calls.

DuPree says the license suspension will be in effect for 30 days. It will not affect other businesses in the area.

The club’s owner has 10 days to appeal and request a hearing with the city council.
