CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – After this weekend’s shooting of five people, people and politicians are questioning who is responsible for the ongoing violence there.
Some want the Coyote Jacks nightclub shutdown.
But a representative from Coyote Jacks this week says they’ve taken measures and say it’s time for Republic Parking, which runs the lot, to step up.
Daniel Weaver, the Marketing Director at Coyote Jacks, told us “Republic Parking needs to step up. They need to understand that this parking lot is dangerous.”
On Tuesday, Republic issued this statement about the violence.
“We are concerned about the incidents that arise on, or near, our parking lot due to its proximity to a late night business. We are investigating the incident and are meeting with local law enforcement and business owners in an effort to address the root cause.”
