(CBS/AP) DOTHAN, Ala. - Authorities have arrested Ryan Clark Petersen for allegedly shooting three people to death at an Alabama strip club and wounding a fourth.

Petersen, 22, faces three counts of capital murder for the killing of an employee, the club owner's son and a customer, at "Teasers" in Wicksburg, Ala., a little before midnight Thursday. He's also charged with one count of attempted murder, according to Houston County Sherriff Andy Hughes.

Police identified the dead as Tiffani Paige Grissett, 31, the owner's son, Cameron Eubanks, 20, and Thomas Robins Jr., 59. Scotty Russell, 33, was wounded in the gunfire.
