Selma Nightclub Reopens After Twelve-Month Shut Down
By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  A Selma nightclub shut down by the city as a matter of public safety about a year ago -- is once again open for  business.

The Selma City Council shut down Club Entourage lat summer -- after a shootout at the club. One person was killed and five other people were shot -- back in June of 2012.

The club's business license was revoked for 12 months. It re-opened for business -- Thursday night.

"That's wonderful!" said Selma resident Ashley Carter. "I miss Club Entourage, I used to party there all the time."

"Just because of all this violence that's going on it doesn't necessarily mean that they should shut the club down," said Carter.

Club owner Clyde Richardson had to get a new business license -- but did not have to go before the city council to get approval to re-open.

"We've paid our debt, we're back in motion," said Richardson.
