GREENSBORO — Greensboro police arrested a man in the shooting of a security guard early Sunday.

Kenyon Olandis Jones, 27, was arrested in Troy, according to a news release. He is charged him with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and possession of a firearm by felon.

Eric Jennings, a security guard at the Greensboro Events Forum nightclub, was shot multiple times after an altercation with some patrons he had escorted out Sunday morning.

The three assailants were seen fleeing in an older-model white Lincoln Town Car. Jennings was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

Police are continuing to investigate the case.

The building at 510 Farragut St. has attracted police attention in the past. In 2007, officers found an alleged robber dead of a gunshot wound outside of what was then Lost Dimensions strip club. Last year, a bar and strip club at the location shut down following a lawsuit from the city.

According to a 2010 News & Record story, police had reported more than 100 calls to the address since 2001.
