Two shooting suspects caught

U.S. marshals have captured two men in Norfolk in connection with a fatal shooting at a Tennessee nightclub.

U.S. Marshal Bobby Mathieson in Alexandria said Charles Liphford and Tevin Lumpkin were arrested Thursday night.

Mathieson said Lumpkin was involved in an Aug. 25 confrontation at a nightclub in Paris, Tenn., that left Eric Kinley, 41, dead. Two others already have been arrested.

Lumpkin, 20, was charged with first-degree murder. Liphford, 32, was charged with a weapons violation.
