Popular Memphis Strip Club VLive Raided, Shut Down, Declared Public Nuisance

Law enforcement shut down Vlive Night Club as a public nuisance Thursday.
Shelby County sheriff’s deputies, Memphis police officers, and Tennessee State Alcoholic Beverage Commission raided the business Thursday morning.

Officers closed the club down with an order from Shelby County Court as a public nuisance.

The troubled club has made headlines for multiple shooting across the past year.

A Memphis rapper, RichLord, was shot outside the club on June 10. He died on June 25.

Last month on May 20, a woman was injured during a shooting at the strip club. Video from the shooting was posted onto social media.

She was taken to the hospital but was expected to be okay. Police said the shooting stemmed from a fight in the parking lot.

Police were called to V Live, which is where rap star Yo Gotti was having the after party from his annual Birthday Bash. When officers arrived at the club, they could not find the victim.

They spotted a car in the middle of Mendenhall. Inside that vehicle, a man was found with a gunshot wound to the head.

Police said they did not know if the shooting was connected to the after party.

According to posts on social media, Yo Gotti is set to perform at the FedEx forum tonight, and this year’s after party was also set to be at V Live.
