Hattiesburg night club license suspended

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny Dupree went before the City Council Tuesday evening to announce the City is suspending the license of a night club in Hattiesburg following a shooting early Sunday morning.

Remington's Hunt Club licence will be suspended for 30 days following the shooting that seriously injured three Southern Miss football players. The suspension will take effect when the club owner in Starkville and the club's general manager receive the certified letter about the suspension, which could be as early as Tuesday evening.

The club's owner has ten days to request a hearing with the Mayor and City Council to file an appeal.

Hattiesburg Police announced the capture of two suspects who they say were accessories after the fact and are still searching for the shooter - Travis Brown of Purvis.

The students were shot outside of Remington's Hunt Club in Hattiesburg early Sunday morning. School officials say all three are in fair condition at a local hospital.

Sgt. Allen Murray with the Hattiesburg Police Department said an altercation took place inside the club around 1:20 a.m. which then moved outside where one person opened fire, seriously injuring the players.
