After further investigation, authorities are now also accusing Holmes of aggravated assault with a firearm, possession of a firearm inside an alcoholic beverage outlet, the illegal carrying or discharge of a weapon, and second-degree murder.

Oakdale Police say their investigation into the shooting is ongoing and additional charges are pending.
