Man is indicted in Lexington nightclub shootings

A Fayette County grand jury indicted a man in connection with a shooting that injured two people outside a Lexington nightclub this month.

Demetrius "Demetrics" Flynn was indicted Monday on two counts of first-degree assault, accused of shooting Jarred Allen Grider and Brooks D. Richardson on Nov. 4 outside Silks Lounge, 125 North Mill Street.

Police have said witnesses told them that a man later identified as Flynn was asked to leave Silks after he reached over the bar and took a drink from a bottle of liquor.

He left, then turned as he was walking down the street, pulled out a handgun and fired two or three shots toward the bar.

Grider, 25, a University of Kentucky junior, was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with serious injuries.

Richardson, 19, was shot in the face and underwent surgery at St. Joseph East Hospital, police said.

Flynn, 22, also was indicted on one count each of fleeing and evading police, resisting arrest and public intoxication.

He has is being held at the Fayette County Detention Center on $17,730 full cash bond.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in Fayette Circuit Court at noon Dec. 1.

Fayette District Court records indicate that Flynn has previous misdemeanor convictions for public intoxication, trespassing, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, marijuana possession and disorderly conduct.
