The safety of revelers at Myth Live nightclub in Maplewood will be the subject of a review by local councilors and police.
Maplewood City Council will discuss the club with police at a meeting on Monday evening, before coming to a decision on steps to improve safety at the club after the latest shooting.
An 18-year-old man was shot outside the club on Mar. 29, suffering critical injuries during a concert by rappers Lil Baby and Blue Face.
In a report that will go before council members, it says the city "has had repeated issues with crime and safety at the Myth Live over the past two years," adding that these issues "constitute a threat to public safety."
On Mar. 29, police were called to the club five times, with officers dealing with disorderly people, a drug overdose, and a large fight that ultimately ended with the shooting.
"The Myth Live has been associated with numerous public safety issues in the past two years which have resulted in unsafe conditions and a threat to public safety," the council report says.
"This incident, and others like it, have required a large regional response from local law enforcement partners and led to unsafe conditions for those in attendance at events."
The city says that police have met with Myth ownership several times over the past two years, and asked Myth to take action to improve safety for those using the venue.
On one night in December 2017, police received 10 calls relating to the club that included a large fight, a burglary, and two possible sexual assaults.
In 2017 alone, police were called to the venue 148 times for various reasons, with fighting and medical calls for alcohol/drugs the most common reason.
In a statement to the Star Tribune on Friday, Myth said it had recently contracted former Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek to carry out a security audit of the club, and hires off-duty police officers for security at its concerts.
It also said that "public safety and guest experience" are the club's number one priority.
