City Shuts Down Barbershop/Night Club


The City of Columbus is closing an East Main Street barbershop that doubles as an underground night club. Officials say the store in the 33 hundred block of East Main was operating in the back of a mostly vacant commercial strip, and was a front for an unlicensed night club. Police responded to as many as eight shootings and fights since last June.  A hearing for a permanent injunction against the owner is set for February 1st.
