CUTHBERT, GA (WALB) – Friday night, GBI agents charged a suspect with murdering a Cuthbert man early Friday morning after a bar fight.

28-year-old Derrick Lewis is charged with shooting 27-year-old Sherome Brookins outside his home on 1st Street just before 3 o'clock Friday morning.

Brookins died Friday afternoon at a Columbus hospital.

Investigators say the two fought at Silver's Lounge earlier in the night.  Another man involved in the fight, 26-year-old Dion McElroy, was questioned but has not been charged.
