Prosecutors filed four felony charges Monday against 24-year-old Traneilous Jackson for the shootings.

The Journal Gazette reports that a man with Jackson told police he was forced to drive after the ambulance following the stabbing at a nightclub. He told police Jackson wanted to avenge his brother, who he claimed had been stabbed by the wounded man.

Court records don't yet show an attorney for Jackson.
