DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) - The Long John Silver's restaurant on Eldorado in Decatur is closed permanently.

A sign was posted to their board out front.

A worker told WAND News they were told about the closing today and asked to pick up their last checks later this week.

The worker said they did not sign a new lease at that location.

WAND is reaching out to find the exact reason for the closure.

The location has had a troubled past year. It was closed by the health department for a period in 2018.

There was also a deadly shooting at the restaurant early this year.
