Following a pair of murders, a Parkville bar is scheduled for a hearing before the Baltimore County Liquor Board early next month.
TeeBee's Bar & Lounge will go before the board 2 p.m. Oct. 1 to show why the bar's liquor license should not be suspended, officials confirmed Monday afternoon.
Two people, including a security guard, were murdered at the bar within two months.
Back in July, a Baltimore City man was found shot multiple times in the bar's parking lot. Thus far, no one has been arrested in connection with the incident.
Earlier this month 38-year-old Tavares Lonell Jones, who was working as a security guard at the bar, was stabbed to death when he attempted to break up a fight.
A Baltimore City man was charged with first-degree murder in connection with Jones' death.
After the September murder, a member of the Harford Park Community Association said the bar had been a perennial issue for the neighborhood going back to 2006.
In a letter dated Sept. 17, Fifth District Councilman David Marks wrote to Liquor Board chairman Charles Klein in support of sanctions against the bar, including suspension of the license.
"I am writing to support the Parkville community, which I represent, as they seek measures against TeeBee's Place," Marks wrote. "Problems with this bar have occurred over many years ... the owners have had plenty of time to implement the improvements that could have restored security and order to this establishment. I agree with residents that [the board] should send a signal that the behavior at Tee Bee’s Place will not be tolerated in Baltimore County."
