KINGSPORT — The owners of the Hog Wild Saloon have agreed to surrender the business' liquor license.

Earlier this year, a deadly shooting took place at the saloon. During the ensuing investigation, inspectors discovered numerous safety code violations within the building, and Kingsport pulled the power and gas meter and shuttered the business until all of the problems were fixed.

The state Alcoholic Beverage Commission and the Kingsport Beer Board are examining the establishment’s licenses, and the owners voluntarily surrendered the liquor license for the next 10 months.
