NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ New Haven Mayor John DeStefano has proposed several changes immediately after a woman was fatally shot and five other were injured in a nightclub shooting.

The New Haven Register reports that DeStefano on Saturday proposed fees for nightclubs in districts where a heavy police presence is required, that police license and train private security at nightclubs, authorization for the city to approve club licenses and the review of different liquor licenses to determine if the state should simplify the permits.

The early Saturday morning shooting at the Key Club Cabaret killed 26-year-old Erica Robinson and injured 19-year-old Amanda John, 29-year-old Jahad Brumsey, 24-year-old Nijia Ward, 34-year-old Albert Dickerson and 25-year-old Ivette Sterling.

Police say the homicide was the fourth club-related killing this year.

Police are interviewing several witnesses. No suspects have been identified.
