DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A 27-year-old man is facing weapons charges in connection with a fatal shooting outside a nightclub just north of Des Moines.

The Polk County Sherriff’s Office says Thursday that Mykael Maggett was arrested April 25 on charges of assault and intimidation with a dangerous weapon.

Detectives determined multiple shooters were in the area during the Nov. 8 shooting that killed 22-year-old Dashwan Smith and wounded three others outside of Evolution Nightclub.

Officials say Maggett was identified on surveillance video as discharging a handgun into a crowd.

He posted bond and was released from jail. A phone listing for Maggett couldn’t be located and his attorney didn’t immediately return a message Thursday.

Sgt. Brandon Bracelin says no one has been charged with killing Smith. Police are looking for several witnesses.
