Albany, GA (WALB) -- Albany City Commissioners will finally consider revoking the business license of Brick House Productions on Schilling Avenue. 

Commissioners meet Monday night.  The commission agenda lists "Consideration to establish a date and time for a show cause hearing re: Brick House Productions/Brick City". 

The Albany business is the scene of a deadly shooting a week ago.

It was targeted for closure a year and a half ago when Code Enforcement officers found all kinds of violations at Brick House productions, from illegally possessed guns to drugs and illegal liquor sales.

They recommended the business license be revoked in July 2008, but commissioners didn't act when District Attorney Greg Edwards asked to wait on license revocation hearings. 

Edwards says, "The District Attorney's office did have an operation that was to bring together several law enforcement agencies in an operation that was going to be more than just code violations."

He says they planned to raid Brick House, last October, but word was leaked.

But when the raid was canceled, Edwards never gave the city the go ahead to shut down the business.

There have since been five shootings and a murder at the East side business since Code Enforcement officers recommended it be shut down in July 2008.

Now, the D.A. Says evidence will again be given to city commissioners, so they can resume their process of shutting Brick House down.

The Albany city commission is expected to set a date license revocation hearing at the meeting Monday night.
