INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 16, 2014)—Detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and the city of Indianapolis have temporarily closed a northeast side club where a fatal shooting occurred last Saturday.

Police said Trent Wilson, 47, was killed after a disturbance ensued inside Capital Punishment, located in the 3600 block of East 25th Street, shortly after 4 a.m. When officers arrived on the scene, they found one person shot and another injured.

“We promote open spaces and safe places in our community,” said Chief Rick Hite. “As such, we encourage responsible business ownership and we must ensure legally safe environments for our citizens.”

An investigation revealed illegal activity occurred in connection with the motorcycle club, prompting authorities to issue the restraining order to the owners, who were identified as Patricia Banyard, Ameer Jones and Tequila Sanders.
