Maplewood moves to close Stargate club after shooting
February 23, 2017
Maplewood City Council members voted unanimously Wednesday to close the Stargate nightclub for an indefinite period after a violent clash last week in which more than 70 shots were fired and five people were wounded.
The club will remain closed until the owner, Paul Xiong, completes a lengthy list of city-verified updates to the nightclub and its security protocol. On Monday, the council will address whether it will suspend or revoke the club’s liquor license.
