A business owner in Greenville says because of reoccurring violence she's decided to shut her doors unless some key changes happen from city officials.

Owner of L.A. Lounge Tamalyn Torrecilla says she chose to do business in Greenville because of it's charm and historical buildings.

But after two shootings within a week, one which happened right outside her door, she says she just doesn't feel safe doing business downtown anymore.

Tamyalyn said she was planning to shut her doors Monday, but after many calls from clients telling her they would miss L.A. Lounge she decided to postpone the closing.

She doesn't have an exact date when she will close, but says she is waiting to see the type of reaction from city officials.
