Broughton Street shooting second this year associated with club

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Sunday morning shooting outside Dosha Bar and Lounge wasthe second shooting this year associated with the club.

A soldier out for a night with his friends reported beingshot outside the club on Jan. 12. 

Even though that soldier is just 18, he told police he'dbeen let into Dosha to party.

When he left, he stopped to watch a fight andreported seeing two men pull guns and start shooting. 

One round grazed his rear end.

The club's owner, Darrell Bryant, told police he hadn't seenanything the night of that January shooting. 

In a phone interview Tuesday night, Bryant told WTOC neithershooting had anything to do with Dosha. He said he'd never knowingly let anyoneunderage into his club.

Bryant has a long list of arrests, dating back more than twodecades. He served time in prison for motor vehicle theft, escape and creditcard theft in the 1990s.

Bryant's latest arrest came in December, when he wascharged with shoplifting.

Bryant didn't want to go on TV but told WTOC crime was inhis distant past and touted his work with a recent breast cancer fundraiser.

City spokesman Bret Bell confirmed Tuesday night that Bryantpassed a background check to obtain an alcohol license for Dosha.

Bell saidthat even though Bryant is a felon, he wouldn't automatically be disqualifiedfor an alcohol license.

Bryant was cited after both the January shooting and theSunday shooting for not having a bar card.

The city requires bartenders and servers to carry such cardsin alcohol-only establishments.

Those charges remain pending before theRecorder's Court of Chatham County.

Dosha's liquor license has been temporarilysuspended until a city hearing.
