Cincinnati - The operator of a Cincinnati nightclub where one person was killed and 16 others were injured in a shooting, says the venue will close its doors for good on Friday.

Cameo club operator Julian "Jay" Rodgers said in a statement late on Monday that the club had received a notice earlier in the day from the landlord and owner of the property to vacate the premises.

Rodgers said he had notified the owner that although he had planned to move out in May due to the planned sale of the property, he would instead move out immediately.

The club voluntarily surrendered its liquor license on Monday.

Police continue to search for suspects in the shooting early on Sunday.
