A man suspected in connection with a quadruple homicide at a Yazoo City nightclub was arrested Monday by U.S. marshals, authorities said.


The Mississippi Bureau of Identification identified the accused shooter as Briddell Barber, 27, of Yazoo City. He was arrested at an undisclosed location, Jackson police said.

Briddell is accused in the shooting, which was reported about 1 a.m. Monday after an argument at the Club 66 nightclub on 11th Street, Yazoo City police said. The crime scene stretched around the corner to a house complex on Lindsey Lawn Drive.

Two of the men were pronounced dead at the scene, the Yazoo County coroner said. The other two wounded men were taken to a hospital, where they died.

“It’s a big shock in Yazoo City,” Chief Andre Lloyd said. “It’s something that you hear from a bigger city. Now it’s coming to a small town, so it’s devastating to the people of Yazoo and all around here.”

Names of the victims were not immediately released.

Barber is also charged in connection with a 2016 shooting at Club Teflon in Yazoo City that killed Justin “Butch” Porter, 25.
