Judge shuts Bowie banquet hall

By Washington Post editors

Following a double shooting Oct. 9 outside a Bowie banquet hall that left one man dead and another man in critical condition, a Prince George's County Circuit Court judge has granted the city of Bowie's request to close the venue until further notice, The Gazette reports.

Bowie Mayor G. Frederick Robinson confirmed Saturday morning that on Friday a judge granted an injunction against the owners and operator of the West Bowie Village Hall.

"The court finds that immediate, substantial and irreparable harm will result to the City's legitimate interests in protecting the public, health, safety and welfare if Defendants are permitted to continue using any part of the property," Circuit Court Judge Beverly J. Woodard wrote in the temporary restraining order, which went into effect at 3:10 p.m. Friday.

Bowie used to be a very nice place to live until it got very "dark" there. When an area gets "dark", crime goes up. This is a FACT!

Wow, DCFanatic. I guess those who harbor such dark racial views need not mince words anymore.

It's true.

Ever since Bowie got populated with kneegrows crime went up.

Nothing grows where kneegrows go.
