The state has suspended the liquor license for K & D Lounge in Hamden and ordered the premises to close amid an investigation into a stabbing inside the establishment and gunshots that were fired outside.
On Monday, the Hamden Police Department notified the state Department of Consumer Protection’s Liquor Control Division about an incident on Sunday, Oct. 6, when a 27-year-old West Haven man was stabbed several times in the back inside the nightclub and several gunshots were fired outside.
On Tuesday, Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle Seagull issued the suspension for the club, which is located at 940 Dixwell Ave. in Hamden.
The suspension order from the state Department of Consumer Protection says at least 23 gunshots were fired from the parking lot and three to four people are suspected. No one was injured during the gunfire.
The state Department of Consumer Protection notice says the nightclub was ordered to suspend its liquor permit immediately and close the premises pending proceedings for “revocation or other action.”
