It was the second incident in a week at Fiesta, a club at 4212 Wake Forest Road.
Police also charged the head of Fiesta security, Thomas Wilson, with delay and obstruction for giving police inaccurate information about what had happened at the club, Sughrue said.
The man who shot Monroe was described as a black male in his mid-20s, about 6 feet tall and weighing 150 to 170 pounds. He had a thin beard or mustache and either dreadlocks or braided hairs. He reportedly had a grill or gold teeth. He was last seen wearing black pants, a black shirt and a baseball cap with NY Yankees symbols all over it.
Last week, police charged Landis Deshon Strickland, 27, of Durham with assaulting a law enforcement officer in an incident on April 8 at Fiesta.
In that incident, which also happened about 2 a.m., a man was shot in a melee that began with the theft of a necklace from a man leaving the club, Sughrue said.
