MACON, Ga. (AP) - A middle Georgia man has been charged with murder in a shooting outside a downtown Macon bar that killed a woman and injured several other people.

Durand Marcel Faulk of Macon is charged with murder and four counts of aggravated assault in the incident in which 22-year-old Jhacaya Mann was killed.

The 29-year-old Faulk was arrested by Bibb County sheriff’s deputies before dawn Tuesday, local news outlets report. Faulk remained jailed without bail on Wednesday and it was unclear if Faulk had a lawyer representing him.

Faulk was involved in a fight at the Thirsty Turtle and was cut on the face, investigators said. They said Faulk then got a gun and fired into the crowd, fatally wounding Mann.

Authorities temporarily suspended alcohol sales at the bar for 90 days immediately following the shooting. The sheriff’s office will review the bar’s operations at that time.

Six people were shot and two were stabbed in the melee.
