NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police have identified a suspect in last month's shooting outside of a busy club.

Police believe 31-year-old Lazarus Payton opened fire outside club WKND on Church Street on July 18.

Three people were hurt, including a security guard, who was critically injured.

Police say Payton was thrown out of the club and returned about 15 minutes later, which is when shots were fired.

Police want to charge Payton with two counts of attempted murder, aggravated assault and felony vandalism in connection with the shooting.

Payton has previous convictions for aggravated assault, felony reckless endangerment, felony evading and unlawful gun possession.

Anyone who knows Payton's whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
