SPOTSYLVANIA, Va. (AP) - A man wanted in connection with the shooting death of a security guard at a Spotsylvania County nightclub has been arrested in New York.

Spotsylvania County Sheriff Roger Harris announced Monday that Chauncey Lampkin was arrested in Mount Vernon, N.Y., after he was involved in a disturbance at a local bar. Harris said Lampkin provided a false name to police, but his fingerprints revealed his true identity and a murder arrest warrant for Spotsylvania County.

Lampkin, 27, faces charges in Virginia in connection with the March 30 shooting death of Marcellus Greene, a security guard at Q-Ball's bar.

Greene was shot after two groups were thrown out of the club during a concert for fighting. Another fight broke out in the parking lot, and shots were fired from a vehicle, Spotsylvania Sheriff's Capt. Jeff Pearce told the Free Lance-Star of Fredericksburg.

Authorities said Lampkin was the shooter. Two others - 26-year-old Lavon Antonio Chew of Spotsylvania and 25-year-old David Davion Burroughs of Stafford - were arrested days after the shooting, accused of being occupants in the vehicle. They face gun and conspiracy charges.

Lampkin faces drug and other charges in New York. Virginia authorities are seeking Lampkin's extradition.
