COLUMBUS, Miss.–Some people go to nightclubs for a good time. Others go looking for trouble. For some people, trouble finds them. Whatever the case for these two men, Timothy Barker, 32, of Columbus is dead, and that may be the first murder in Mississippi in 2015.
It happened right after the countdown at Club Heidi. Two guys got into it and one pulled a gun, then pulled the trigger. Barker was shot at least once and died at Baptist Memorial, Golden Triangle.
WCBI reported that a 30-year-old man was taken away by police and was expected to be charged today.
