Liquor board allows DC9 to reopen

By Paul Duggan

A District licensing board voted Wednesday to allow the reopening of DC9, the nightclub ordered closed by police after a man died in a controversial incident involving four employees and a co-owner of the bar, The Post's Crime Scene blog reports.

The popular club in the 1900 block of Ninth Street NW was shut down by D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier after the Oct. 15 death of Ali Ahmed Mohammed, who was chased by the five men after he threw at least one brick through the club's front window, according to police. They said Mohammed, 27, of Silver Spring, died during a physical encounter with the men on the street.

On Wednesday, the seven-member governing board of the city's Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration voted unanimously to allow the club to reopen Dec. 15 under several conditions, board spokeswoman Cynthia Simms said. She said the decision will be reviewed at a Jan. 19 hearing.
