KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The club where one person died and several others were shot outside the club entrance in January will re-open this week.

9ine Ultra Lounge posted on its Instagram page Tuesday that it will re-open at 10 p.m., Saturday, March 7.

In late January, Kansas City, Missouri’s Regulated Industries Division said the club had failed a probationary period to maintain its liquor license.

At the time, the club had 45 days to obtain the consent of at least 8 nearby businesses to have their liquor license restored.

Regulated Industries manager Jim Ready told 41 Action News reporter Andres Gutierrez Tuesday that the club is still working to gather the support of nearby businesses, but in the meantime, will be allowed to re-open with a liquor license.

However, if the club’s owner Alphonse Hodge fails to get the support of nearby businesses, the club will lose its liquor license.

Raeven Parks, 25, was gunned down outside the club on Jan. 20.

The suspect in the shooting, Jahron Swift, 29, was shot and killed by a security guard working at the club.
