UPDATE: Suspect arrested in fatal club shooting

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Deontre Alvez Hubert, 18 years old, was arrested Thursday night and booked into the Richmond County Jail for Murder and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Crime. 

Hubert was arrested in connection with the shooting death of Edward Yancey on 1/1/2013 at Club Fiesco on Peach Orchard Road.


Many young adults who frequent Club Fiesco are frightened to return to the South Augusta nightclub after a fatal shooting at a New Year's Eve party early Tuesday morning.

"I don't think I'll ever go back to that club, because you're putting your life in danger," said Jabari Ford, who's recently went to the club when a fight broke out by the bar.

Richmond County investigators say Edward Yancey, 21, died from gunshot wounds in the parking lot of the night club on Peach Orchard Road. Witnesses say the shooting happened after an argument that started inside the club then moved into the parking lot. Investigators do not believe Yancey was involved, which is making some afraid to go back.

"It's kind of tragic, I mean, I used to go to the club all the time with my friends, and now it's kind of just scary to do anything," said Jamal Bolton, who said he'll continue going to the club, but with more caution.

Investigators are now searching for more witnesses who could tell them what exactly happened that night. But club-goers say that night wasn't much different than any other.

 "It's wild. It's crazy. They have a lot of drama, like fights," Ford said.
