LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Louisville Metro Police have made an arrest in connection with a double shooting outside a after hours club.

Twenty-six-year-old Ryan "Murdastyle Teazy" Fuqua was arrested Tuesday on assault charges.

According to the arrest report, Fuqua is the person responsible for a shooting outside The View after hours club on Story Avenue Dec. 9. Police said the victim jumped into his car and crashed in to a telephone pole shortly after being shot in the abdomen when he was leaving the club.

Several witnesses said violence between the men escalated following an ongoing Facebook feud that began after the victim expressed displeasure over a song at a music contest.

Police said Fuqua was identified as the shooter through a photo pack.

He is behind bars at Metro Corrections awaiting a court date.
