Providence nightclub to remain closed as board deliberates

A Providence nightclub is remaining closed as the city's board of licenses deliberates its future.

Van Gogh Lounge was shut down Sunday after police say two men were shot outside following a fight that began inside the nightclub.

Surveillance video provided at a hearing Thursday shows a man with a gun and the crowd scattering during the shooting.

One man was shot in the chest and another was shot in the legs.

WPRI-TV reports the board will make a decision on the club's future in the next 10 days. The nightclub will remain closed until then.

An attorney for the club says the case is full of hearsay and that the city did not try to bring in witnesses. He says the board is treating his client unfairly.
