WACO (January 8, 2012)- A local nightclub that has been surrounded by violence, officially surrendered its liquor license and closed for good January 2nd.

Club Alazan in Waco, has been targeted by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage and Commission during the past months. Alazan agreed to give up their liquor license and close for good in November after TABC slapped them with multiple violations.

TABC Spokesperson Victor Kuykendoll says the club was mainly targeted for possesion of non-invoiced alcoholic beverages.

In 2006, a man was stabbed in the head and torso while leaving Alazan.

The club saw shootings in 2008 and 2010, and earlier this year two men were robbed at gun point in the Alazan parking lot.

In October 2012, a man was stabbed to death in the Alazan parking lot. No arrests have been made following that stabbing yet.
