Three Holdenville men arrested in connection with recent shooting outside a local night club appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and learned only one individual would be charged with the crime.

The driver of a 2002 Pontiac Firebird, 21-year-old Jesse James Ramsey, and his two passengers were arrested following a shooting from that vehicle in the parking lot of the C-4 Club in Ada. Ramsey later admitted to law enforcement his alleged involvement in the crime.

Pontotoc County Undersheriff Joe Glover said the three individuals were taken into custody in connection with the shooting and questioned. During an interview, Glover said the driver, Ramsey, admitted to using a 9mm semi-automatic handgun to fire four shots from his car while it was parked at the bar.

The suspect vehicle was impounded and during an inventory search the PCSO located four 9mm shell casings on the car floorboard, Glover said.

Ramsey's passengers faced accessory charges but were notified Tuesday the state elected not file charges against them. Ramsey however was formally charged with shooting with the intent to kill and could face up to life in prison if found guilty. Ramsey is currently being held on a $50,000 bond and is scheduled to reappear Dec. 20 at 1:30 p.m. to discuss legal counsel.
