BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Police have arrested a 27-year-old man for a shooting at a Bloomington nightclub last month.

Bloomington Police said video from inside Kalao helped investigators identify Keiantrea Washington as the suspect in the April 23 shooting. Three people were wounded in the shooting inside the club shortly after 1 a.m. 

Washington was arrested at a home on South Magnolia Court Monday. He is facing felony charges of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated battery and criminal recklessness.

Investigators said Washington allegedly got into an altercation with a 41-year-old inside Kalao, at which time the suspect pulled out a handgun and fired multiple shots in the bar. He fled the scene before officers arrived.

Shortly after the shooting at Kalao, police received a call about a shooting victim in a parking lot near 6th and Lincoln streets.

Officers responding to the scene found a 26-year-old man in the passenger seat of a car with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. The man was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Police believe the shooting occurred in an alleyway near Kalao, in the area of Kirkwood Avenue and Sixth Street. 

At this time, investigators still have not determined if there is any connection between the shootings at the club and in the alley.
