The signs for Tino's Nightclub at 84 West Park Place in Stamford have come down.  The restaurant is voluntarily giving up its liquor license and closing after a shooting happened right outside its doors.  

"Because we do worry about people, we do worry about businesses around us, the neighbors," said Oscar Moreno, manager of Tino's Nightclub and Restaurant.  

The nightclub's manager says they're shutting down, following the violence that occurred Sunday morning.

"This is a safe place.  The name has been taken down and closing the restaurant because we want this to be a safe place for people," said Moreno.  

Today, area building and restaurant owners, city police and the Stamford Downtown Special Services District were on site while the signs were taken down.  

"We have no tolerance for this random, senseless violence," said Mayor David Martin.

Moreno says Tino's management has been meeting with the city, DSSD and restaurant owners -- yesterday deciding this is the best option.

"We got to do what we got to do to keep moving forward and make people feel safe," said Moreno.  

For now Moreno says they're talking about what they're going to do next -- if they'll open a new restaurant, what kind of restaurant.  He says they haven't decided at this point.
