Residents last night voiced anger over plans for a Birmingham pub to extend its hours to 2am at weekends.
The concerns were raised at a public meeting held to discuss the licensing application by The Sheldon Pub, on Cranes Park Road, in Sheldon.
A shooting was believed to have taken place at the pub last month when a gang of men were reported to have opened fire on a man in the car park.
The incident, which police believe was the result of a feud between two local gangs, was the latest in a series of acts of disorder at the pub which have angered residents.
The meeting last night, at the Silvermere Centre, was organised by Liberal Democrat councillors and the MP for Yardley John Hemming.
Mr Hemming said he had been speaking to the brewery which runs the pub to force it to change the clientele.
Residents claim many young people drinking in The Sheldon are attracted to the pool tables and live sport.
Mr Hemming said the landlord had done his best to stamp out disorder, but he called on the brewery to transform The Sheldon.
He said: "Sheldon is a very pleasant suburban area of the city which does not experience the same crime problems as other areas. However, in the middle of a nice residential area is The Sheldon, which is simply the wrong type of pub for the area."
A resident said: "The pub needs to be completely changed to cater for families, not yobs."
