Williams said the incident occurred about midnight at Trey One, formerly known as Lightning’s Club.

The sheriff said investigators believe a minimum of five shots were fired, but Thompson was the only apparent victim. He died of a gunshot wound to the head.

More charges could

be filed, Williams said. "We’re still investigating."

The sheriff said a witness’ identification led

him and District Attorney Ronnie Dollar to Boyd in Brundidge.

"We had a witness who saw him with a weapon," Williams said. "We picked

him up and talked with him, and the charges were filed."
