PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A club in Station Square where a man was shot last month will be closed this weekend.

The Allegheny County District Attorney’s office met with the owners of Club Zen on Wednesday.

District Attorney Stephen Zappala voiced concerns about the club’s operations on Tuesday exclusively to KDKA’s Harold Hayes.

“They made representations to liquor control and enforcement which they’re going to have to prove to us,” Zappala said.

“And if they did misrepresent their type of business or their type of clientele and it’s not really fraternal organizations or persons who would be the subject of the catering business, then we’ll contest their license,” he added.

Mike Manko, a spokesperson for the district attorney’s office, released a statement following Wednesday’s meeting.

“Following a meeting this afternoon between our office and Michael Norman, the principal officer in Club Zen, and his legal counsel, Mr. Norman has agreed not to operate the club this weekend while further discussions between his counsel and our office continue.”

In October, Shaka McGhie, was shot three times while celebrating his 21st birthday. His parents told KDKA-TV they want the club designated a nuisance bar and shut down.
