LAWTON, Okla. The commanding general at Fort Sill says soldiers can no longer visit a nightclub where a double homicide occurred last month.
Maj. Gen. Mark McDonald said soldiers must stay away from the Platinum Gentlemen's Club, where a soldier and another man died Jan. 20. Investigators have said 20-year-old Pfc. Jamar Mitchell died after being shot four times, and 28-year-old George Whitney II was shot dead by a security guard. It wasn't clear whether the men had an altercation or whether Mitchell was a bystander.
Another shooting was reported at the club last July.
The Lawton Constitution reported McDonald said he was placing the club off-limits in an effort to protect the "health, welfare and safety" of his personnel. The order covers personnel assigned to Fort Sill permanently, temporarily or administratively.
