Police Arrest Second Suspect in Spades Lounge Shooting
Tuscaloosa Police arrested a second suspect in the Spades Restaurant and Lounge shooting that left a man critically injured in late July.
As previously reported by the Tuscaloosa Thread, the incident occurred on July 27 when police were called to the West Tuscaloosa lounge on reports that a person was shot in the parking lot shortly before 1:30 a.m.
According to a deposition obtained by the Tuscaloosa Thread Tuesday, an altercation took place between two groups of individuals, who were put out of the lounge by security.
The deposition stated upon exiting, one of the groups armed themselves and began firing at the other group, striking the victim, who was not involved, in the leg.
Witnesses later identified 24-year-old Corey Kwaimaine Lewis and 39-year-old Timothy Tyrone Powell, both of Eutaw, as the suspects in the case.
Powell was arrested Friday and charged with first-degree assault. He was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where he is being held on a $60,000 bond.
