The mayor of Southfield is saying enough is enough after four people were shot at a bar over the weekend.

Officials are now considering pulling Bar 7's liquor license.

Police say two victims at Bar 7 on Telegraph Road were shot, as well as two people across the street, as the result of some type of altercation.

Three victims were shot in the chest/abdomen area and one victim was shot in the arm. 

A 23-year-old man from Detroit is in critical condition; two 37-year-old men from Detroit are stable. 

The 30-year-old man wounded in the arm was arrested; a second suspect has also been arrested, police say.

This is the second shooting in about a year at the bar. Southfield's mayor says the bar has also had a number of fights and other incidents police responded too since then.

Southfield's City Council will consider an emergency revocation of the liquor license Monday night. If it passes, it will be forwarded to the state liquor control board.

The bar's owners are hoping steps they are taking will prevent the revocation of the liquor license. They say they will begin shutting down at midnight. They're also looking to make changes to their security, as well as the music the DJs play.
