Atlanta police make arrest in December nightclub shooting

An arrest has been made in a December homicide at Dejá Vu Sports Bar and Lounge.

Brandon Kirkland, 22, was arrested Thursday in connection with the death of nightclub owner Amin Bouchelaghem. During the Dec. 30 incident, Michael McGee Jr. and Larry Brooks were also injured, police said.

Bouchelaghem was pronounced dead at the scene, which was in the parking lot of the Joseph E. Boone Boulevard club.

A preliminary investigation revealed a group of men were at the club for a business meeting when two men approached with guns drawn. The gunmen fired several shots, then fled the scene, police said.

Kirkland was taken to the Fulton County jail, where he is being held on a murder charge.
