Circuit Judge Sam Pope on Monday set a $500,000 bond for a man suspected in the weekend shooting death of a Pine Bluff man on the parking lot of a Monticello gas station.

Charlie H. Dobbins, 37, of Monticello, likely will be charged with first-degree murder, first-degree battery and felon in possession of a firearm in connection with the Saturday morning shooting death of Hunter Laney, 25, of Pine Bluff. A female was wounded in the gunfire.

The shooting apparently stemmed from a dispute that began at a Monticello nightclub.

Shortly before 2 a.m, Laney and Dobbins reportedly got into an argument at a local nightclub and security personnel at the club ordered them to leave. They left in separate vehicles and traveled west on U.S. 278 West.

As Laney’s vehicle pulled onto the parking lot of a gas station on U.S. 278 West, a light colored SUV truck followed and someone inside the SUV began shooting into Laney’s vehicle, striking two of three people inside.

Drew County Sheriff Mark Gober and two of his deputies arrested Dobbins on Saturday around 3:15 p.m.
