LAWTON — A judge has revoked the beverage license for a Lawton nightclub where two people were shot to death last month.

Comanche County prosecutors sought the revocation of the Platinum Gentlemens' Club's license to serve beer, arguing that the club wasn't a properly licensed corporation when it applied for its beverage permit.

Prosecutors also argued that the club listed the incorrect address on its beer license application.

Defense attorney Art Mata, who represents the corporation that owns the nightclub, told a local newspaper that the district attorney's office was looking for a reason to revoke the club's beer license after the double killing.

Mata says he'll appeal the decision.

Pfc. Jamar Mitchell and 28-year-old George Whitney II were shot to death on Jan. 20.
