A 29-year-old Clovis man was arrested Tuesday afternoon in connection with a Sunday morning shooting at a dance club outside the city limits, according to Curry County Undersheriff Wesley Waller.

Shannon Jackson is charged with assault with intent to commit a violent felony, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and felon in possession of a firearm, Waller said.

Officials with the Curry County Adult Detention Center said Jackson is being held without bond because of a probation violation.

Waller said Jackson shot Timothy Threats, 38, twice in the buttocks about 3:55 a.m. outside Club B-lo-Zero, which is located off NM 467 near the overpass.

Threats received treatment for his injuries and was in stable condition Tuesday at Plains Regional Medical Center. Waller would not identify the type of gun used in the shooting.

The shooting was the result of an altercation that occurred outside the club, he said.

Waller said the shooting was not gang-related.

“It was more of a general dispute between individuals,” Waller said.

Waller said the club is relatively new, having only been open about a month.

An advertising flyer for the club lists it as an “after hours” club open until 5 a.m.

Previously, the location has housed teen hangouts such as The Hole and Absolute Zero.

Waller said his department is evaluating the legality of the establishment. “We are looking at it to see what enforcement issues can and will be addressed,” he said.

A call to a phone number on the flyer seeking comment was not returned.
