The owners of Tino’s Night Club, the site of an early Sunday morning shooting that injured five people, have surrendered their liquor license and ceased operations, according to a statement released by Stamford Mayor David Martin.

Martin met with officials from the Stamford Police Department, the Downtown Special Services District and several owners of properties in the Columbus Park area on Monday to discuss the shooting, which was caught on video and distributed via social media. 

“This was a senseless, violent act that has no place in Stamford or anywhere,” Martin said in a statement. “I applaud our police department for their swift response to what was an isolated event. The safety of our community is always our top concern and over the coming weeks we will be increasing our police presence in the area to provide additional security.”

Tino’s owners Alice Lei and Alex Poon will also remove the storefront sign from the facade of 84 Park on Tuesday afternoon to demonstrate their commitment to public safety in the downtown community. Martin, Police Chief Jon Fontneau, numerous city officials, restaurant owners and residents will also be in attendance.
