City Attorney and other officials working to shut Coyote Jacks down
The City of Chattanooga is working to shut down Coyote Jacks as they face more violations from the city and state.
In a letter to the club owners, the City Attorney states the city of Chattanooga learned that in July, the state dissolved the company's business license, which should have nullified their beer permit two months before the deadly shooting this past weekend.

The club was the scene of murder over the weekend.
