Dallas police say a man has been charged with capital murder over a shooting outside a nightclub that left two women dead. Police say 20-year-old Stetron Lawrence of Dallas was jailed Monday with bail set at $1 million.

Electronic records for the Lew Sterrett Justice Center did not list an attorney for Lawrence, who was arrested hours after the gunfire early Sunday.

Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse says multiple shots were fired in front of the club Ground Zero.

Police said 26-year-old Patricia Brown and 25-year-old Latoya Summerling were pronounced dead at a Dallas hospital. Two other people were wounded.

Police are investigating what prompted the gunfire. Details on what led police to Lawrence were not immediately released.
