Capital murder arrest made in Lanett nightclub shooting

WRBL Staff and Associated Press - LANETT, Ala. -- A capital murder arrest has been made in the mass shooting at a Lanett nightclub.

News 3 has learned that 20-year-old Daron Dafney of Auburn was arrested Wednesday night by Lanett police.

Dafney is being held at the Chambers County Detention Facility on capital murder charges on no bond.

As News 3 reported, early Sunday morning on October 22, investigators believe two shootings led to deadly violence both inside and outside Club Addiction located on 19th Street.

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

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

Defense attorney Mark Carlton said Friday he was just appointed to represent Dafney and doesn't have enough details to comment.
