Zero Gravity - Voted Chicagoland's #1 Teen Dance Club - Naperville, Illinois
Twenty-one people were killed and 50 more injured early this morning in a terrifying stampede that officials and witnesses said erupted at a nightclub after security guards used Mace and pepper spray to halt a fistfight between two women. A city lawyer said the second-story club was open in violation of a court order, a contention the club's lawyer disputed. The authorities said they would seek criminal contempt charges as early as Tuesday against the owners of the South Side establishment for allowing people into the nightclub, E2, which sits above the upscale steak and seafood restaurant Epitome. The club, known for raucous dance parties, had been ordered shut in July because of 11 violations of fire and building codes. James T. Joyce, commissioner of the Chicago Fire Department, said that several of the building's doors were locked or blocked during this morning's melee and that most of the victims died when they were crushed by some 1, people -- perhaps twice the permitted occupancy -- pouring down a single narrow staircase.

But even before one foot could hit the club's dance floor, city residents had already made their minds up about the venue.
