Columbus authorities closed the A to Z Market on Hudson Street Tuesday, citing several instances of illegal activity and code violations.

Police say officers and paramedics were called to the market 15 times in the last two years for criminal activity and alcohol-related illnesses. Owner Mohamed Al Damen also allegedly threatened to shoot and kill a customer after an argument. An injunction hearing is scheduled for March 9.
