ALBANY, La. (WAFB) - An arrest has now been made following a shooting at a club in Albany.

“My detectives have spoken to witnesses, reviewed surveillance video available from the scene, and interviewed the two males who were hit by gunfire. Through our investigation, it has been determined that Jyston Dantzler was the aggressor in this case. He has been processed into the Livingston Parish Detention Center (or LPDC),” said Sheriff Jason Ard.

Dantzler, 20, has been charged with attempted second degree murder and felon in possession of a firearm. His bond was set at $125,000.

Around 1 a.m. on Sept. 22, deputies were dispatched to a club located in the 30000 block of N Cafe Line Road about a report of shots fired.

Sheriff Ard says two males suffered gunshot wounds. One was hit in the shoulder, while the other was shot in the leg. Both were transported to local hospitals. The males were treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

Ard added that investigators know the males were arguing before the argument escalated into shots being fired between them.

This investigation continues.
