SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)—The owners of a San Francisco South of Market nightclub where three people were shot over the weekend have surrendered their entertainment permit and are closing the business.
The owners of 330 Ritch have decided they will no longer seek to run a business there, according to Entertainment Commission Executive Director Jocelyn Kane.
Mayor Ed Lee has promised a full investigation of the early Saturday morning incident and a crackdown on night-life violence.
The shootings occurred on Ritch Street, an alleyway off Brannan. Police spokesman Officer Carlos Manfredi said the initial shooting occurred inside the club after an argument and that more shots were fired just outside the club and in a nearby parking lot.
Mayor Lee said the city’s nightclubs have to do a better job of keeping patrons safe.
