HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - A judge has ordered the temporary closure of a Hot Springs pool hall after six people were injured in a weekend shooting.
Garland County Circuit Judge Marcia Hearnsberger issued the order Wednesday that declared Pocket's Full Bar a "public and common nuisance." The Sentinel-Record reports (http://is.gd/08kJSE ) that the pool hall is to remain closed pending a hearing set for Nov. 8.
Authorities say six people were taken to the hospital early Saturday after the reported shooting. Authorities say no one suffered life-threatening injuries and the incident remains under investigation.
Officials say the Arkansas Beverage Control Board has suspended the pool hall's alcohol permit after the shooting.
City Attorney Brian Albright says the bar's owners agreed to the temporary closure until the November hearing.
