Bar's License Suspended for 10 Days after Shooting

CROSS LANES, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A business owner in Cross Lanes is learning more about his company's future.

The Alcohol Beverage Control Administration (ABCA) had a meeting with the owner of Appetizer's on Monday to discuss an incident that happened in December.

Spokesperson Gig Robinson tells during the meeting Appetizer's suspension was extended 10 days. At the end of this suspension, the restaurant will be able to sell beer and wine only.

The downstairs of the establishment will remain closed.

After six months, Appetizer's can file a petition to get its liquor license reinstated.

Robinson says this decision was made after the company came up with a plan that will improve safety issues at the business. Robinson says this is a proactive way to phase in alcohol at the establishment to ensure safety of its customers.

Appetizer's was the scene of a shooting on December 26 where dozens of shots were fired and one man was hit in the leg. No arrests have been made in the case.
