UPDATE: Heat Nightclub Temporarily Closed

HUBER HEIGHTS -- A controversial club is temporarily closed, and the city of Huber Heights is taking steps to make sure the doors stay locked for good, before anyone else is killed.

The Heat Nightclub was the scene of a double homicide last weekend.  Tuesday afternoon, a Montgomery County judge handed down a restraining order right before court closed up for the day.  It prevents the Heat from operating until an official hearing, which is set for the end of the month.  Police say the action was necessary to make sure no one else was hurt.

Charles Bell III, 25, and Keenan Hall, 20, were shot and killed outside the Heat nightclub over the weekend.

"I hope they shut it down, I really do, I hope they shut it down," said Bell's grandma, Joyce Chase.

Chase got her wish, at least temporarily.  A judge agreed with Huber Heights police, that it was too risky to allow the Heat to continue serving up beats and booze while they wait for the official court date.  That's slated for the end of the month and will determine if the club will sizzle or fizzle.

"What we want to do is remove the opportunity for people to commit crimes.  Are we going to stop all crime?  No, but we can provide the safest opportunity for residents, businesses and patrons," said Huber Heights Police Chief Rob Schommer.

Police have made hundreds of runs to the club in the few years it's been open, responding to everything from noise complaints to shootings.  But, the chief says the double homicide was the final straw.

"We want people in business, but I want to send a message to businesses of this caliber: We don't want you in Huber Heights," said Mayor Ron Fisher.

Police say the court will rule in the city's favor at the May 28 hearing and shut down the Heat for good.

Police still have no suspects in the double homicide.



Earlier coverage:

MONTGOMERY COUNTY -- The controversial Heat Nightclub in Huber Heights won't be sizzling this weekend.  A Montgomery Co. judge temporarily shut it down around 4pm Tuesday.

The club was the scene of a double homicide last weekend, which was just the latest in a series of problems there.  There's still a poster hanging in the window advertising a huge party this Friday, but that's no longer going to happen.  A judge issued a restraining order, preventing the owners from operating the Heat until an injunction heating later this month.

Huber Heights says the club has been a nuisance ever since it opened.  police have been called there hundreds of times for everything from noise complaints to the shooting last weekend, which ended with two young men being killed.

"This isn't an attempt to close down a business.  This is an attempt to bring back safety and security to our community that 38,000 members have asked for and have been trying to accomplish over the last few years," said Huber Heights Police Chief Rob Schommer.

There will be a hearing on May 28th at 9am, which will basically determine whether The Heat will be allowed to continue operating as an adult club.  Huber Heights is confident the court will rule in the city's favor.  Police still have no suspects in the double homicide.
