PREVIOUS STORY: Chattanooga nightclub Coyote Jacks is getting new ownership following a shooting that left a 19-year-old dead on Sunday morning.

Ronnie Berke, who is the uncle to Chattanooga’s mayor Andy Berke, is giving 100% of the business to his co-owner Tammie Taylor.

Taylor says for years, people have brought up her co-owner’s relationship to the mayor and that after this shooting, Ronnie has decided it’s time to protect his family’s name. 

The Chattanooga Police Department released body camera showing the chaos Sunday morning at Coyote Jacks. 

An underage person was shot outside the nightclub shortly after 2:00 a.m. Sunday.

“I feel very sad with what has happened. My heart goes out to the victim’s family,” said Coyote Jacks owner Tammie Taylor.

Taylor says her co-owner’s nephew, Mayor Andy Berke, has “been through the ringer” and that’s why Ronnie Berke is handing over the business.

“Because of Andy being the mayor, he is going to pull out of the business as my business partner and give me 100% of bankable holdings,” said Taylor.

There’s been a history of violence at 1400 Cowart Street where the popular nightclub is located. 

Since 2015:

-Police have been called to assist at the address 470 times.

-Gunshots were reported 23 separate times. 

-Ten people were shot at the location with three of those shootings being fatal.

The Beer Board will meet October 17, and will take into account that the club is being charged with overcapacity during the time of the shooting.

Taylor plans to be at the meeting. She denies that the club was at capacity during the time of the shooting or that the underage victim was inside. 

“We’ll bring all our stuff and provide our evidence and see what happens,” Taylor told Channel 3.

If the Beer Board agrees with the violations brought to them by the regulatory board, they will then decide a penalty enforced by the regulatory office.

Taylor is offering a $5,000 reward to the person who can provide video showing who shot Brandon Rogers.

The Chattanooga Police Department released a statement saying, “Chief Roddy is working with the City Attorney to examine the events that occurred over the weekend and any previous events that could be used in any future legal actions, up to and including, the closing of Coyote Jacks.”

Police are still looking for the person who shot and killed Rogers early Sunday morning.

If you have any information, you’re asked to call Chattanooga Police at 423-698-2525.
