JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The second suspect in a deadly Jonesboro shooting appeared in court Friday afternoon.

A judge found probable cause to charge Kalius Lane with first-degree murder and six counts of first-degree battery.

Bond for Lane was set at $5 million.

Another suspect, Chauncey Jovon Thomas, appeared in court earlier in the week and his bond was set at $1 million.


The second suspect arrested for a deadly shooting in Downtown Jonesboro was extradited back to Craighead Co. Thursday.

Officers traveled to Texas to pick up Kalius Jaciel Lane to bring him back to Craighead County.

According to Jonesboro Police Sgt. Cassie Brandon, Lane was arrested Monday night in Mesquite, Texas.

Brandon said Lane waived extradition on Wednesday.

Lane was sought in connection with the shooting early Sunday that killed one person and injured six others. He was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and six counts of first-degree battery in connection with the shooting at the Basement. 

Brandon said the arrest happened due to the work of Jonesboro police, U.S. Marshal Bob Clark and the U.S. Marshals Dallas/Fort Worth Fugitive Task Force. 

Earlier Monday, Region 8 News received a video that police say shows a suspect from a deadly shooting over the weekend.

Sgt. Cassie Brandon confirmed the five-second clip shows Lane, 20, of Jonesboro inside The Basement in Downtown Jonesboro on the morning of the shooting.

Six shots can be heard in the video. Brandon also said the department has received the same video from "more than one source."

One man was killed and six others were injured in the shooting, according to JPD. 

Chauncey Jovon Thomas, 19, of Jonesboro turned himself into authorities Sunday after a warrant was issued for his arrest on suspicion of first-degree murder and six counts of first-degree battery. 

Police went to a shots-fired call at 311-B South Main St. around 12:20 a.m. Sunday.

One victim, Monterio Barnes, 18, of Jonesboro was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities also named the six victims in the shooting - Stefan Hawthorne, 18, Carey Bell, 21, Steven Brimlett, 38, Asia Smith, 25, Devontae Fowler, 19 and Cordarius Jackson, 18, all of Jonesboro. Their conditions are not known, police said. 

Those injured were taken to hospitals in Jonesboro and Memphis.
