JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

A King University student was killed and three others injured in a shooting in Johnson City early Sunday morning.

According to our sister station WJHL, 24-year-old DeShaun Greer was killed after gunfire erupted outside of a club called The Battery on State Franklin Road around 3 a.m.

Three others were injured in the gunfire. They have been identified as 21-year-old Jamison Greer, 23-year-old Zachary Breedlove, and 27-year-old Jonathan McInturff.

Investigators learned the shooting stemmed from an incident that occurred earlier in the evening.

"There was just some kind of altercation inside the club that happened earlier in the night then once the club had closed down it just kind of bled over into the parking lot," said Sergeant Kevin Peters.

Jamarcus Jackson, 24, was taken into custody at the scene.

He has been charged with second degree murder, attempted second degree murder, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.

Jackson also faces charges of unlawful possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and simple possession.

He is being held in the Washington County jail on $200,000 bond.  His court date has been set for March 24.

The investigation is ongoing.

A family member told News 2 Greer, a Marshall County native, was a student at King University in Bristol, Tenn.  She said he was expected to graduate soon.

"He was a loving son, brother, uncle, boyfriend, and friend to many loved ones.  He was a great role model and this is a devastating loss to all his family, friends and community," the family member said.

Officials of King University tweeted, "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of DeShaun Greer. May God give you peace and comfort during this time."

The school is holding a vigil for Greer Sunday night at 9 p.m. in the school's chapel.
