He faces several attempted murder charges, among other weapons-related charges.

The shooting happened in November 2016 at the Pure Ultra Club on Main Street and appeared to target one person, according to police. The other four who were shot were bystanders, police said.

One of the people hurt was treated at the club. Three others were treated and released from a local hospital. The fifth shooting victim was at the hospital getting treatment, police said. That victim’s condition was not released.

The city later revoked the nightclub’s business license.
