TROY, Ala. (WSFA) - Troy police are searching for a man they say is wanted on a murder charge in a shooting that took place Saturday.

According to Chief Randall Barr, Xavier Quantez Edwards, 27, is a suspect in the death of Andre Lydell Thompson, 33, of Highland Home.

The shooting happened at Gold Mine Entertainment around 1:37 a.m. Barr says officers at the scene learned Thompson had been taken from the shooting by a personal vehicle to Troy Regional Medical Center. He was later pronounced dead.

Troy police ask for anyone with any information on Edwards’ whereabouts to call 334-566-0500 or the secret witness line at 334-566-5555.

Troy police say they do not yet know what the motive was or the relationship the two men had.

The club has only been open for about a year or so, according to Lt. Bryan Weed, who said police have responded to calls there but nothing major until this.
