There's been another arrest in a Tallahassee night club shooting.

Court papers released this morning show the victim was shot five times in the chest and back.

Michael Williams has been arrested and accused of attempted robbery and attempted murder for a shooting outside Cheeks Lounge.

He is the second man to face charges. Jeterius Williams was arrested last week.

The shots rang out just before 4am on April 11th in the parking lot of Cheeks Lounge on West Tennessee Street.

Tallahassee Police say two men got out of a car in the parking lot - pulled out guns - and told the victim "Give it up, Popeye."

Arrest papers say the victim turned and ran, but was shot five times and collapsed on the dance floor inside.

The man survived, and arrest papers say he recognized Michael Williams because they went to high school together.
