UPDATE: Heat Nightclub Owner Speaks Out

HUBER HEIGHTS -- The owner of the troubled bar, Heat Nightclub, speaks out for the first time.

Jessica Kennedy defends her business, telling council and the community she has a right to be here.  The community is fighting, however, to have this bar shut down for good.

"We're not going to put up with this kind of stuff," Huber Heights Mayor Rob Fisher said to the crowd in council chambers.

Fisher is fed up.

"We're all very, very dismayed at the fact that the liquor board overturned us with the fact that the club down there, and it's a shame that it cost two young men their lives," Fisher said.

"I am very sorry that this tragedy has happened," said Jessica Kennedy to city council.

Monday night, Kennedy addressed council members and the frightened community, defending her right to own a business in the city.

"I have no liquor violations," said Kennedy. "I've broken no laws ever."

But the city is concerned about the safety of the community.

"The Heat Nightclub brings nothing but trouble," said Veronica Sexton to city council members.

Sexton wants the club out of her neighborhood.

She's concerned for her safety because police have been called out to the club 637 times in the two years it's been open.

"Two people died, families lost their loved ones, I mean I live close, it's scary," said Sexton.

The city is expected to file a temporary injunction on Heat Nightclub, in hopes to eventually shut it down permanently.

But the bar's owner refuses to let that happen.

"I'm just gonna keep operating my business," said Kennedy. "This would have happened anywhere; unfortunately, this was just basically beef on the streets."

City leaders plan to have a hearing in front of a county judge on Tuesday for the temporary injunction.

They are hoping it will be granted, which will shut down Heat Nightclub for eight to 10 days.  From there, the community hopes to find a way to permanently shut it down.
