ROSEDALE, Md. (WJZ)—Baltimore County Police are keeping a close eye on Pulaski Highway in Rosedale. Last weekend a man was shot and killed in the Club Baltimore parking lot.

Pat Warren has more on the concerns about the club.

Noise, assault and now homicide. The Baltimore County police chief has reason to consider Club Baltimore a potential threat to public safety.

Nothing appeared unusual at Club Baltimore on the morning of July 2. But around 2 a.m., before the sun came up, the parking lot was a crime scene– as described by a passerby who declined to be identified.

“Oh man I saw – it was at least 20 police cars out here and they had the whole area roped off and it was terrible,” the witness said.

George William Bryant, 36, was shot and killed in the parking lot.

The manager tells WJZ it was impossible for employees to tell what led to the shooting  because access to the club parking lot from Pulaski Highway makes the location open to highway traffic.

“I would think that this was an okay location, but being that I saw all that last week I don’t think I’ll be coming back here,” said a witness.

A spokesperson for county police says it’s on the chief’s radar, especially in light of what happened at the club last weekend. The department has paid very close attention to Club Baltimore and the police chief has made it clear that he’s prepared to take action if the situation does not improve.

The manager tells WJZ the club staff is fully cooperating with police. He says management is concerned about their own safety, as well as the safety of others and is working on noise complaints.

“And we’re optimistic that the situation will improve there,” he said.

Club Baltimore remains open for business.

A hearing on noise complaints is reportedly scheduled for next month.

Police are asking anyone with information about last week’s shooting to contact them.

    The Police Idiot Chief calls this club a “potential threat to public safety’. What police state BS mumble jumbo that is. Does he consider the Urban Terrorist who control baltimore city a potential threat? I mean they shot in broad daylight, murder for sport, rob and rape with abandon (except down at the con don’s inner harbor) and he thinks this club is a Potential Threat.

    Honestly, these Aholes need to be fired summarily for stupidity and for trying to divert Baltimore’s absolute failure to reign in crime by focusing on the minor. This issue is minor compared to HIS failure; his predecessor’s FAILURE and his before him to make Baltimore little better than a Jail without bars!!!!!!!!!!

    And, you stupid baltimorean’s keep voting in the likes of inept theif shelia dixon and now o’murder’s girl (and connected daddy’s girl stephanie rawlings blake). For christ sake make a change, shake things up so normal people can live in the city w/o being constant PREY!!!!!!

      Voters make some major mistakes: 1) they don’t want to upset the status quo, 2) they vote along party lines instead of choosing a candidate based on their personal merrits 3) they don’t demand personal accountability from candidates and ins. In short, voters are lazy, and candidates count on it.

      It must be a very delicate balance, keeping us so preoccupied with our economic woes and minutiae without turning us completely off of their candidacy. Frustrating.

    lol, I think the cops are too busy at the local donut shop to actually care.

    WJZ are communist!!! They censor every politically incorrect comment on why this club violence occurs. We all know race has everything to do with it, but they are cowards for censoring comments on this subject.

    1. Censored BS says:

      Use intelligent language rather than slang, and they dpn’t censor you. Also, if you post something and it shows up but is later removed, that isn’t the webs item it’s your peers who reported your comment as inappropriate.

    Hmmm. “I’m going to open a cheesy bar, a building containing 100 or so patrons in varying degrees of drunkeness, on an industrial byway. Oh, and I have great concerns for my safety and that of my employees.” Ooooooookay, gotcha’.
