Amarillo Bar Shut Down Following Friday Morning Shooting


An Amarillo bar has been shut down following a shooting late last week.

The Galans Club was found to have been operating improperly by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission when they arrived to assist the Amarillo Police Department in the incident.

A shooting occurred during the early morning hours of June 1st, and the APD swat team and K-9 officers found two suspects hiding in the bar, and took them in for questioning.

TABC agents began their own investigation upon the discovery that one of the suspects was the bar manager at the club. Investigators found that the bar owner, Glenda Marie Galan, had allowed the manager to illegally run the bar as his own.

Transferred ownership of a TABC permitted establishment is illegal under the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, and the TABC cancelled the club’s permit.

“Our main concern after the shooting was to stop the illegal operation of the bar,” said Captain Mark Menn, TABC district supervisor for the West Texas District. “When that responsibility is illegally handed over to someone else, incidents such as this can be the result.”

No criminal charges will be filed against Ms. Galan at this time, according to the TABC.
