A security guard for popular rap artist Webbie has been indicted on murder charges in connection with the shooting death of a man who was attending a concert at a downtown Dothan nightclub.
Travarius Dewaunkalils Daniel, 30, was arrested Jan 24, 2012---two days after Anthony Jerome Robinson was gunned down outside Club Prime Time on East Powell Street.
A grand jury, during a recent session, heard evidence in the case and later decided there is enough evidence to send Daniel to trial. The case has been assigned to Houston County Circuit Judge J. Michael Conaway.
The shooting occurred about 2:00 am as the rapper, whose real name is Webster Gradney, was at the club to perform. Gradney was questioned and his tour bus impounded. He has not been implicated in wrongdoing and his bus was later released.
A security detail, of which Daniel was a member, became involved in a disagreement with off-duty police officers. The officers, paid by the club, left and a melee, according to preliminary hearing testimony, broke out afterwards. A witness said Daniel fired a gun during the fights and at least one bullet struck and killed Robinson.
An arraignment for Daniel has been set for July 17 and trial is scheduled for August.
