The family of a man shot and killed at a Marietta bar want the establishment closed.

The family of Tekilum Terrell told WSB-TV that Milo's Bar and Grill on Garrison Road that he has not been the only shooting victim at the establishment.

In April 2013, police charged three people with killing Terrell at Milo's.

Terrell's mother, Barbara Lawson, told the station, "They shot and killed my son there. And it's been two shootings since then. Why is he still in business?"

Thomas Milo, who owns Milo's Bar and Lounge, told WSB-TV that he knew Terrell.  Milo said Terrell was a good customer and was upset to learn he had died.

"I knew T. To come back and realize he was the one that was shot, it's really touching man," said Milo.

In the latest shooting, March 20, Cobb County police said a stray bullet hit a bystander.

Milo's owner told the station he's planning to have officers in the parking lot during bar hours.

Yeah, the problem isn't rampant black-on-black violence and a completely broken down family structure caused by the failure of the Great Society and the lack of parental guidance. The problem is there's a bar in Marietta. Tear it down.
