The Village of Bloomingdale suspended the business license of a hotel where six people were shot, one fatally, last weekend in the northwest suburb.

Mayor Franco Coladipietro issued a temporary suspension order Tuesday prohibiting Indian Lakes Hotel from doing business for 10 days, although the village’s statement suggested the hotel might remain closed.

“The owner, First Hospitality Group, has voluntarily agreed to cease all business operations and informed the Village of Bloomingdale that they have no intention to reopen business operations on the property at this time,” the village said in its statement.

A spokeswoman for First Hospitality Group wouldn’t say if the company plans to close the hotel permanently. “As of now, we have not established a timeline for the resumption of operations,” company spokeswoman Carissa Remitz said in an email.

On Saturday, a Chicago man was killed and five others were wounded in a shooting at hotel, at 250 W. Schick Road, after an argument broke out, police have said.

Following the incident, Colladipietro said there were no security guards on duty, and that officials expressed concerned for years about a lack of security at the hotel.

A hearing on the suspension will be held Feb. 23.

A temporary suspension order dated Feb. 9.
