The man accused of pulling the trigger in a deadly shooting last year at Diva's Gentleman's Club is back in Kentucky after being arrested in Indiana.

Lexington Police issued an arrest warrant for Tevin Wright, 22, on November 26 in connection to the murder. According to police, he is accused of shooting and killing Curtis Simmons at Diva's Gentleman's Club on the 1300 block of Russell Cave Road on November 13.

According to newly released court documents, a car pulled into Diva’s parking lot and Wright got out while four other people waited inside of the car. He then allegedly pulled a gun and shot Simmons multiple times before he jumped back in the car and drove off.

Simmons was taken to UK Hospital, where he later died.

According to the arrest warrant, Wright was seen on security cameras entering and exiting the night club before the murder.

Interviews with witnesses and tips led authorities to Wright, police said. He was believed to live in the Richmond, Indiana area.

Wright was found and arrested in December by police officials in Indiana.

According to the arrest warrant, Wright had been previously charged in Indiana for possession of cocaine, criminal confinement and residential entry.

In the Diva's incident, Wright was charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Fayette County District Court on Monday.
