City officials are trying to close a nightclub owned by rapper Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew after a man was killed and another wounded there in a weekend gunfight.
City Attorney Alex Vilarello filed court papers Tuesday seeking an injunction closing the Strawberry Too club. A hearing wasn't expected before Friday.
Campbell, who has owned the club for two years, was acquitted of obscenity in October along with other members of the group. They were arrested for a concert featuring songs from his group's album "As Nasty as They Wanna Be."
Campbell said police were to blame for violence at the club because they failed to control crowds outside.
"I think the City of Hialeah is full of it, personally, because every club in the city of Miami, Miami Beach, all over the county, has police outside of the club," Campbell said.
