Authorities have added a federal charge against a Detroit man in a New Year’s Eve shooting at a West Virginia bar that wounded seven people, authorities announced Wednesday.

Kymonie Desean Davis, 30, was indicted in federal court on one count of being a felon in possession of ammunition, U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart announced. Davis remains at large.

A previous arrest warrant in state court charges Davis with seven counts each of malicious wounding and wanton endangerment.

He is accused in the shooting at the Kulture Hookah Bar during a party. All seven people who were shot have been released from the hospital.

The bar was ordered shut down by authorities Jan. 2. Officials had cited licensing issues and a failure to pay taxes.
