LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was arrested for allegedly helping a suspect who fatally shot two people Saturday afternoon near a closed nightclub in the Russell neighborhood.

According to his arrest report, 31-year-old Maurice Gibson drove a murder suspect away from a deadly shooting on 26th and Cedar streets on Saturday, Sept. 10.

Officers were called to the 400 block of 26th Street at Cedar Street, near Club Cedar Bar, around 2:45 p.m. on a report of a shooting. That's where they found 26-year-old Edward Smith who had been shot and killed. 

Moments later, police were called a block away on Cedar Street and found 24-year-old Alexis McCray fatally shot in a car. 

Homicide detectives investigating the case reviewed video from several surveillance cameras in the area and identified a vehicle that appeared to be connected to the case. That vehicle was located around 6:30 Tuesday evening with Gibson in it. He was taken into custody, and police said he admitted to giving the suspect a ride after the murders. Surveillance video showed the suspect in the vehicle Gibson was driving before and after the Smith and McCray were killed. 

Gibson is scheduled to face a judge Wednesday to face two counts of complicity to murder.
