Kansas City will not renew the liquor license for the Retro nightclub at 1518 McGee St., forcing it to close indefinitely.

The city’s action, announced Friday, follows a fatal shooting outside the club about 3:25 a.m. Jan. 26. The Regulated Industries Division said the club was hosting an illegal after-hours party at the time. The city said it was one of several ordinance violations at the club.

Another fatal shooting outside Retro occurred in May 2012.
