The shooting happened May 22 near The Town nightclub in the 700 block of Pacific Avenue of Tacoma.
According to police and charging papers:
The wounded man told investigators he had been at the club with friends, and Green and another person had taunted them.
Green fired a shot in the club and followed the man and his friends outside. Green fired again, and the man was wounded by the bullet fragment.
Police found a .40-caliber handgun near the driver’s side of the car Green was driving after he ran off after the shooting.
