AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn police have filed additional charges against two men arrested after a deadly shooting.
Twenty-one-year-old Shamon D. Williams of Opelika and 21-year-old Shatarious R. Cobb of Auburn already are charged in the death of 20-year-old Marquez Patrick of Opelika. He was shot at a now-defunct bar in Auburn on Dec. 15.
The Opelika-Auburn News (http://bit.ly/JhJRC6) reports that police say the two are now also charged with attempted murder in the shooting.
Two more people were injured in the gunfire, but their wounds weren't life-threatening.
Auburn's city council has since revoked the license for Jackie Lee's Bar, where the shooting occurred.
