OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma City attorney who shot and killed a former client nearly a year ago was arrested for a shooting outside a bar.

Police say 49-year-old Jay Silvernail was arrested early Friday for assault with a deadly weapon after shooting a man outside Groovy’s in northwest Oklahoma City.

The man’s name wasn’t released. Police say he was hospitalized in serious condition.

Sgt. Gary Knight says the shooting followed a fight.

A woman who was with Silvernail said Silvernail was trying to stop people from taking a female friend from the bar. Marsha Weaver said she believes the female friend had been drugged.

In June 2015 Silvernail shot and killed former client David Scott Smith when Smith attacked him. Prosecutors ruled that shooting was self-defense and no charges were filed.
