The northern New Jersey bar where six patrons were wounded when multiple shooters opened fire during a comedy show last week has been temporarily shut down.
Sports in the City Lounge, located on the border of Bloomfield and Newark, will be closed for the time being after inspectors uncovered various fire and health code violations. Bloomfield police say they are making progress in their investigation into the Dec. 2 shooting. Police Director Samuel DeMaio declined to comment on a possible motive.
Ballistics evidence has shown three guns were used in the shooting and roughly 30 shots were fired. The six victims are all expected to survive. A portion of the shooting was captured in a video shared on social media by Brooklyn-based comedian Toni Byrd. The gunmen remain at large.
