HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg City Council has suspended the license of a night club in Hattiesburg following a shooting Sunday.
Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny Dupree asked the Hattiesburg City Council to suspend the operating license for Remington's Hunt Club at their 4 p.m. meeting Tuesday, sources said.
The license will be suspended for 30 days, but the club owners in Starkville will be allowed to ask for a hearing within 10 days.
Mayor Dupree has said the city is concerned about security at the club.
The nightclub, located off Hwy 49 in Hattiesburg, was the site of a Sunday morning shooting which left three University of Southern Mississippi football players seriously wounded.
Hattiesburg Police announced the capture of two suspects who they say were accessories after the fact, and are still searching for the shooter - Travis Brown of Purvis.
The students were shot outside of Remington's Hunt Club in Hattiesburg early Sunday morning. School officials say all three are in fair condition at a local hospital.
Sgt. Allen Murray with the Hattiesburg Police Department said an altercation took place inside the club around 1:20 a.m. which then moved outside where one person opened fire, seriously injuring the players.
