Two Cleveland City councilmen are promising action after a downtown bar fight ended in a fatal shooting Saturday morning.

“It’s absolutely ridiculous,” said Councilman Joe Cimperman, whose ward includes downtown Cleveland.

Cimperman said the fight started in Lounge 75 on Public Square. It then moved outside where two people were shot near West 3rd Street and Frankfort Avenue. One of the shooting victims, a 23 year old, died.

Cimperman said he’ll be reviewing every option from declaring the club a nuisance and boarding it up to revoking the liquor license.

Councilman Kevin Conwell, who chairs the safety committee, is also promising action.

“I’ll meet with Councilman Cimperman,” he said, “and we’ll get down to the bottom of what’s going on there and we’ll root out the bad seeds of crime and then if people, if they’re not doing the right thing then they will not get their liquor license.”
