Police have charged a 19-year-old man in a quadruple shooting that occurred before dawn Sunday morning outside a West Baltimore after-hours club.

The incident - initially reported as a double-shooting - occurred at about 5:30 a.m. as private security cleared people out of an after hours club called Rasta's in the 2100 block of W. North Ave. after a fight, according to police. Police said a gunman opened fire, striking three people, at least two of whom were employees of the club. A fourth victim was later identified after walking into a Baltimore County hospital for treatment.

Police spokesman Det. Jeremy Silbert said detectives on Monday morning charged Karon Darren Shaw, of the 1600 block of Moreland Ave., in the case. Court records show he was charged with three counts of attempted murder.
