JANESVILLE (AP) -- A Janesville man accused of jumping into a separate group's photo at a club which then sparked a fight that resulted in a shooting is due in court.

Thamar K. Harper is charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide. The 29-year-old has an first appearance in court today.

Prosecutors say a 23-year-old man was trying to take a group photo last weekend when Harper jumped into the frame. That's when Harper and the group began fighting, and security asked them to leave.

Harper then followed three of the men back to their cars, and then fired a gun into the car where the victim was seated. The victim was shot about six times.
