LANETT, Ala. (AP) — Police have arrested a third man in a shooting that killed two people and left seven wounded at a nightclub in eastern Alabama.

Lanett police say 26-year-old Dequavious D. Cobb of Auburn is charged with one count of murder and seven counts of assault.

The Opelika-Auburn News reports Cobb is being held in a shooting at a nightclub called Club Addition on Oct. 22. Court records aren't yet available to show whether Cobb has a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.

Two other men were previously charged in the shooting, which left a man and a woman dead. Authorities say a gunman went to the nightclub and opened fire.

Officials say a man died inside the nightclub and the woman was fatally shot in a car nearby.
