COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus police have arrested a third man and charged him with murder in connection with a shooting at a sports bar.

Police also say the shooting at the 4th Quarter Sports Bar on October 9 happened as a result of an altercation between two motorcycle gangs the Strikers and the Outcast.

The latest suspect Daginald Wheeler has been charged with murder and armed robbery. Two other suspects, Demark Ponder and James Daniels were already in custody facing the same charges.

Police say all three suspects are associated with the Outcast Motorcycle Gang. Wheeler is due in Recorder’s Court Friday, November 13 at 2 p.m. 

On October 9, police responded to reports of a shooting at the 4th Quarter Sports Bar at 6969 Macon Road. When they arrived, officers located Dominic Mitchell suffering from a gunshot wound.  Mitchell was transported to the Midtown Medical Center ER where he passed away from his injury. 

Police say their investigation revealed that a local motorcycle gang was holding a meeting at the sports bar when approximately 10 to 13 members of another local motorcycle gang showed up and started a physical altercation which led to gunfire breaking out.

The two motorcycle gangs involved were the Strikers and the Outcast according to police. They say a total of 63 rounds were fired at the scene, which resulted in the death of Dominic Mitchell and the wounding of two other individuals.
