The Cadillac Bar was the scene of a murder this weekend, and now that bar has been shut down until Friday.
State liquor agents said that the Corpus Christi Police Department asked for the closure as part of its investigation. Police are still looking for 29-year old Jose Moreno, the man they believe shot the 41-year old victim at the bar on Ayers near Port.
It was just after 10 p.m. Friday when police arrived to the club on a shooting call; but it was too late. The 41-year old victim, whose name is also Jose Moreno, was dead.
The gunman took off, and police have been looking for him ever since.
In the meantime, CCPD asked the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission to shut the bar down for a week, until they finish their investigation.
"A summary suspension is a tool, an administrative tool that the TABC has access to, to allow us to suspend the permit for a period of seven days," TABC Lt. Larry Linscombe said. "This suspension is non-punitive. It's not a punishment set up against the bar owner or the employees because they did something wrong."
The TABC said the owner of the bar, Marcus Soliz, showed up at their office wanting to know about the suspension. They also said that the bar doesn't have any previous violations that would call for it to be shut down permanently.
The Cadillac Bar will be open at the end of the week, but some of the people who live and work in the area have their concerns about the club.
