Neighbors who live near suburban bar feel safer with closing

10/23/2016 Maple Heights -- A bar that was the scene of a deadly shooting last Saturday and was known as a crime magnet is now closed thanks to quick action by prosecutors, who got a restraining order.

A beef inside the H2O Ultralounge turned into a shooting outside, with 26 shell casings found and four cars hit by bullets. Also found was a bleeding 21-year-old Jacques McDuffey who died a short time later. 

The deadly shot turned out to be the hit that broke the camel's back. There are homes close enough to be hit by stray bullets. 

A neighbor said she heard gunshots that night. 

"Just made me nervous," she said. "I'm glad it's over."

Prosecutors say the bar was also the site of fights, gunshots, drug sales, open containers and more. In just the past 12 months, there have been 65 calls for police.
