— Sumter County Sheriff Anthony Dennis has begun the necessary process to shutdown a local nightclub.

Sheriff Dennis said Club Miami on Broad Street Extension in Sumter is a threat to citizens.

“We can no longer continue to tolerate the threat this establishment has caused to our citizens, Shaw Air Force Base partners, the community and visitors to our area,” he said.

One person was injured and one killed at the nightclub Sunday. Rodney Green, 31, was arrested in connection with the shooting.
