Toledo police said that Andrea's was on the city's CERT (Code Enforcement Response Team) list, which is a list of properties with a lot of calls for service or other violent crimes.

Andrea's was taken off the CERT list for complying, but after Wednesday night's homicide, the sports bar is back on the list.

Toledo police spokesperson Lt. Kellie Lenhardt said the department understands businesses are essential, which is why the goal is compliance rather than shutting a business down.

"The city will work with owners and the managers to come under compliance and help improve the areas where they need improvement and if those recommendations are met, they are taken off the CERT list but if they are not, then they could face being shut down," said Lt. Lenhardt.
