LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The city of Las Vegas shut down Club 512 on Fremont East after a series of violent fights.

The city, along with police detailed incidents dating back more than two years, these included multiple patrons reporting against guards at the club.

Videos shown Wednesday in a Las Vegas City Council meeting showed a security guard knocking out a patron.

Also, a shooting in 2017 was discussed in the meeting as suspects were involved in a fight at the club and returned, shooting a guard at a business next door.

The nightclub was named Red when that incident took place before it went under an emergency suspension where the owners added new security measures, changed the name this year, and the concept of the business.

An attorney representing the club said the security guards in question no longer worked there and told the council he also thought the club would have been sold to resolve any issues with the city.
