Providence club’s fate remains uncertain weeks after triple shooting


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A Providence nightclub where three people were shot last month will remain closed for another week as the city’s Board of Licenses mulls whether it should be shut down permanently.

Revel Lounge has been closed since the incident, which happened inside the nightclub back in October.

The Providence Board of Licenses has met several times since then to discuss the nightclub’s future, but has continued the matter each time, including during Wednesday’s meeting.

No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting, and police are still trying to figure out how the suspect was able to sneak the firearm inside.

The Providence Board of Licenses said they’re trying to determine whether there’s a connection between how Revel Lounge operates and the ongoing violence both in and around the nightclub.

One of the three shooting victims told investigators a fight broke out at the DJ booth just moments before shots rang out.

This isn’t the first act of violence to occur at Revel Lounge in recent months. Back in September, a man was shot and killed outside the nightclub.
