LANETT, Ala. (AP) — Authorities have charged a man with capital murder in connection with a nightclub shooting that police say left two people dead and seven others wounded in Alabama.

Court records show 20-year-old Daron Mykel Dafney is jailed without bond in a shooting early Sunday at Club Addiction, located near the Georgia line in Lanett.

Court documents show Dafney is charged in the slaying of Tashina Paulette Davis. A complaint says she was shot to death with a .40-caliber firearm while in a car.

Lanett police say a gunman went to the nightclub in the early morning hours and opened fire, wounding seven people and fatally injuring a man and a woman. They haven't released a possible motive.
