Indiana State Excise Police officers have cited a Fort Wayne strip club Monday afternoon for multiple administrative violations stemming from the Sunday morning shooting inside the establishment that left one dead and three others injured.

The Bleu Diamond Showclub, 9439 Lima Road, was issued violations for allowing a minor to loiter, consumption of alcoholic beverages when times unlawful, failure to clear bar service, public nuisance and failure to maintain a high and fine reputation. The violations will be referred to the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission's Prosecutor's Office.

The club was cited in June 2016 for public nuisance and nudity in exhibition or professional dancing after an undercover investigation led to the arrest of an employee for prostitution. Two other employees were investigated for public nudity.

Sunday's shooting remains under investigation. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 436-STOP or the Drug Tip Hotline at 427-1262.
