UPDATE: The man accused of shooting four people at a Mobile night was granted a $80,000 bond on Friday.

John McCarroll was ordered not allowed to have contact with victims, witnessess or Paparazzi. In addition, he can’t be in possession of any firearms, a judge ruled.

Prosecutors asked for higher bonds for McCarroll and that he not be allowed to leave Mobile County, but because McCarroll is a truck driver, the judge denied the motion.

Late Wednesday night MPD arrested 28-year-old John McCarroll.

McCarroll is charged with four counts of 1st-degree assault.

Officers found two 27-year-old victims, a male and a female, suffering from gunshot wounds.

While officers were at University Hospital, two additional victims arrived by personal vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds. Police said a 33-year-old male and a 32-year-old female suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Lieutenant Stanley Ladnier with the Major Crimes Unit didn’t state whether or not if McCarroll has any relationship to any of the victims, or what could have transpired at the club.

Lt. Ladnier says the investigation is still ongoing and they are looking for more suspects.

When asked about the shooting McCarroll stated, “I didn’t do that s**t man, they just needed somebody to blame. I ain’t open fire and shoot nobody. They just needed somebody to blame.”

As far as the victim’s condition, three are still non-life threatening.
