Ohio investigators announced Monday that they’ve cited the site of a deadly nightclub shooting in Cincinnati with multiple violations including drug abuse and drug possession.

Liquor agents who inspected the Cameo club after the Sunday shooting that left one man dead and 16 injured said they found Marijuana in plain view along with partially smoked marijuana in an employee-only section.

Adam Johnson of the Ohio Investigative Unit said Monday the club was cited once before, in 2015, for drug abuse.

The Cameo club was also cited with health violations, including finding bugs in liquor bottles.

The Cincinnati police are still searching for suspects and said there doesn’t appear to be any video footage from inside the club.
