Judge orders Foxx Trap Gentlemen’s Club to close following fatal shooting

Posted: Updated:
A Birmingham strip club that was the site of a deadly shooting last weekend has been ordered to permanently shut down.

The shooting happened early Saturday morning at the Foxx Trap Gentlemen’s Club on 2nd Avenue North.

Investigators say an off-duty Birmingham police officer was working as a security guard shot and killed another security guard.

The incident happened just days after the Birmingham City Council voted to close the strip club. However, a Jefferson County Judge granted the club owners a temporary restraining order allowing the establishment to stay open.

Today the judge ordered the strip club to close.
