Permit suspended at Las Alazanas Bar

Amarillo, TX - After a weekend shooting, Las Alazanas Bar has had their permit suspended.  

Five people were injured in the shooting incident Saturday night.

Now the doors are closed and a suspension of their permit is in effect for the next week.

During the initial investigation by TABC and Amarillo Police, there were indications showing a possibility of more acts of violence.

This does not happen frequently.

In fact, a suspended permit for this type of situation has not been issued in at least two years.

"We need to have that information within twenty-four hours, sometimes during the investigation something comes to light early or sometimes it comes to light later in the investigation, beyond the twenty-four hours. We want to make sure we have a safe environment for the public," says Sgt. Randy Chatham, Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. 

We're told the cooling-off period will not be lengthened.

Once the investigation is complete, if the shooting occurred as a result of actions taken or not taken by the bar, there could be some sanctions; including fines, suspension or cancellation of the permit.

    Vacant properties aren't just eye sores to the community. These abandoned homes increase the chance of crime, promote illegal activity, and are serious fire hazards. "Often we find that even though it might be boarded up someone has found a way to enter the structure. And as it gets cold, obviously those people may try to start a fire or something inside to stay warm. And as a result of course we get a structure fire," said Community Development Administrator James Allen. ...
