BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - Binghamton officials have begun a potential lockdown process for a club in the city following a fatal shooting at the property in July.

The Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin reports (https://press.sn/1NEkoOq ) the city sent the Antler Lodge a warning Aug. 13 to begin legal proceedings and give the owner 10 days to respond.

Mayor Richard David says a meeting will be scheduled to form a plan to correct the problems.

The city’s letter cited the July 24 death of 33-year-old James High, among other incidents, as being a reason for the possible lockdown.

The letter stated the lodge “has been accused of being a public nuisance.” If a court agrees, the property could be shut down for up to a year.

David says a “regular pattern” of illegal activity would warrant a lockdown.
