GRACEVILLE, Fla. (WTVY) - A man faces murder charges following his arrest related to a weekend shooting at a Graceville restaurant.

Authorities in Houston County apprehended Trayvon Dorsey Sunday night, per Graceville Police Chief Jason Barley. Dorsey is charged with shooting Shannon LaTrent Weatherington inside Hardees Restaurant on Saturday.

This is not the only serious charge Dorsey faces.  In August, Dothan police charged him with Attempted Murder and a Possession of an Altered Firearm. At that time, he listed a Cuthbert, Georgia address.  He posted bond and awaits trial.

For the Florida shooting of Weatherington, Dorsey will be extradited to Florida.

Graceville police have not released a motive or ruled out additional suspects.
