According to investigators, Servant was seen hitting people with a gun when they did not comply with his orders. Servant also confronted Glover, who witnesses said was doing donuts in his car in the parking lot of the club, records show.

Investigators said a friend of Glover armed himself with a gun and attempted to confront Servant and the other man. The friend claimed the other man shot him in the leg, police said. The friend of Glover returned fire, hitting the other man in the groin, records show.

Police said that as Glover tried to leave, Servant was standing in the road. Glover attempted to drive around Servant, but the 33-year-old fired into the open driver’s window, killing Glover and causing the Camaro to crash, according to investigators.

Officers said Servant admitted to being at the club on the night of the shooting but denied opening fire. He claimed he was picked up by a friend before the shooting; however, police said that friend did not back up his alibi.

Servant faces charges of second-degree murder, shooting into an occupied vehicle, aggravated battery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony.
