PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A Phoenix strip club where an off-duty firefighter was killed no longer has lost its liquor license, officials said on Wednesday.

The head of the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control said the owner of Centerfolds Cabaret agreed to getting its license revoked.

The liquor license was suspended since Jan. 30.

Police say Centerfolds Cabaret bouncer Brandon Draper pushed off-duty Daisy Mountain firefighter Luke Jones to the ground and repeatedly hit him, while manager Timothy Piegari disconnected the video equipment.

The investigation is still ongoing as it's unclear what the motive for the attack was.

Jones was a 12-year veteran of the Daisy Mountain Fire District.
