The bar that was the scene of a recent shooting has decided to close its doors. 

A Facebook post on Ten X Nightclub's page says it was not an easy decision "but given the recent unfortunate events that unfolded at the venue, it was a decision that had to be made."

According to the post, the bar shut down after this past weekend.

When contacted by CBC News, a representative of the club declined to comment.  

On January 10, three men pulled up to the club in the Beltline, one got out of the car with a gun and shot into the front door. One man was injured in the shooting and two people were taken into custody. 

A third man is still wanted by police.
