A man from Springfield was charged with two felonies after he was accused of shooting a person outside of Illusions strip club near Nixa.

Antoine Bostic, who is 35 years old was charged by police for first-degree assault and armed criminal action.

A probable cause statement says that Christian County deputies were called to the strip club in the early morning hours on Oct. 30 for reports of a shooting.

That statement lists a witness who told police that Bostic had shot a man in the leg.

The News-Leader reported that Bostic allegedly told police that he did fire the shots but they were fired in an effort to break up a fight.

The victim survived that gunshot wound to the leg.

The News-Leader also reported that Bostic has had a previous conviction for statutory rape involving a 12-year-old girl. Prosecutors say he is a non-compliant sex offender.

Bostic pled not guility but faces a possible life sentence if convicted on the assault charge.
