Liquor license suspended for Denver bar where four people were shot | Crime and justice
The Denver Licensing Department closed a bar in the LoDo District where two people were killed and two others injured in a shootout on Saturday.
After the shooting, the Denver Department of Excise and Licensing announced it was suspending the liquor license for The Cabin Tap House at 1919 Blake St.
“The disruptive and illegal activities associated with the registered establishment have created a dangerous and unsafe situation and the continued operation of the establishment in this manner would constitute a danger to the public health, well-being and safety of the community,” said the order. . “The director finds that there is a probable cause for revocation or suspension of the license.”
Police responded to reports of a shooting in the bar shortly after 1 a.m. on Saturday. Upon arrival, they found a dead man and woman. Two other men were also shot dead in the shooting and taken to a local hospital, police said.
The Cabin Tap House is owned by Hussam Kayali – also known as Valentes Corleons – who also owns the Beta Nightclub.
Last month, the licensing department recommended that the city revoke Beta’s liquor and cabaret licenses after an investigation found unlicensed security guards working at the facility.
Attempts to reach Kayali on Sunday failed.
