[UPDATED] Red Flags at El Toro Loco Last Year, but State Failed to Take Charge
Last December, I called ABT in connection with this post, in which I found that the El Toro Loco location at 2928 S. Military Trail was the common denominator in a January 2009 drug-related stabbing death and the August 2009 discovery of a teenager's dead body. Another El Toro Loco, also known as Jimmy's Cafe, at 1999 S. Military Trail, was the site of a December 2009 brawl that ended with a man being shot in the chest.
UPDATE: A spokeswoman for ABT, Alexis Lambert, told me this afternoon that the agency opened an investigation of El Toro Loco on July 27. That's more than seven months after I called the agency to ask why it had not initiated an investigation of the nightclub based on the violent incidents that had already taken place there.
