COLUMBUS, Ga. — A man jailed in a deadly shooting in Georgia has been accused in another.

News outlets reported on Tuesday that 31-year-old Brandon “Chip” Senior is charged with murder in the Aug. 20 shooting of 25-year-old Nathan Johnson. Senior had previously been charged with murder in the Aug. 22 shooting of 33-year-old Tamir Harris.

Senior also faces several gun charges including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He has a court appearance set for Thursday morning.
