An Indiana man has been indicted on a murder charge in connection with a November shooting outside a Lexington strip club.

Tevin Devon Wright of Muncie, Ind., is accused of murder and tampering with evidence in the shooting death of Curtis Simmons early Nov. 13 outside Divas Gentlemen's Club on Russell Cave Road, according to Fayette Circuit Court documents.

Wright, 23, was seen on video surveillance footage shooting Simmons, 33, multiple times before getting into a vehicle with four other men and fleeing the club's parking lot, the documents said.

Wright was being held in the Fayette County jail. No bail was set for the murder charge. Bail is set at $3,000 on the tampering charge.

Wright's next court appearance is scheduled for May 1.
