PHOENIX (AP) - State officials announced Tuesday they have suspended the liquor license of a Phoenix strip club where an off-duty firefighter was killed.

The Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control says agency says it will set a hearing to determine how long the license for Centerfolds Cabaret will be suspended.

Police say Centerfolds Cabaret bouncer Brandon Draper pushed off-duty Daisy Mountain firefighter Luke Jones to the ground and repeatedly struck him, while manager Timothy Piegari disconnected the video equipment.

Draper was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder. Piegari was arrested on suspicion of hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence.

A motive for the assault remains unclear. Jones was a 12-year veteran and leaves behind a wife and daughter.
