Officer Jared Booth was called to the nightclub about a disturbance.

At that time, sources told WCBI that Booth was talking with a security guard and heard two shots. He ran toward the gunfire and saw some men fighting over a gun.

Our sources said as Ray Davis turned toward Booth, the gun was pointed at the officer. That is when Booth fired. Davis died a short time later.

The Attorney General’s office presented the case to the grand jury and confirmed the no bill results.
