A second suspect accused of involvement in a shooting inside an Alabama Walmart store has been arrested, police said Wednesday.

Mobile police arrested Darrius Rowser early Wednesday and charged him with attempted murder, five counts of assault, shooting into an unoccupied vehicle and an occupied building, burglary and reckless endangerment.

Rowser, 19, was arrested at approximately 1 a.m. Wednesday, police said.

He is the second suspect charged in connection to the December 27 shooting inside a Walmart story on Interstate 65 in Mobile.

On December 30, police arrested Karmelo Derks, 18, in connection to the shooting. Police have said they are also searching for another suspect Jimaurice Pierce, 19.

Rowser is also suspected of being involved in another shooting and a home invasion, police said.

The Walmart shooting happened, police said, when a group of people entered the store and spotted another, rival group in the self-checkout area and began shooting at one another.

He is also charged in connection with the shooting at the Paparazzi Club on November 26.
