Knoxville man indicted for voluntary manslaughter after shooting man outside of Alcoa Highway strip club

Authorities say Randolph T. Garner shot and killed Brodrick J. "BG" Gipson in July 2021 at The Ball Gentlemen's Club.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A grand jury has indicted a 32-year-old Knoxville man for killing a person outside a South Knoxville strip club.

Officers with the Knoxville Police Department originally charged Randolph T. Garner with the second-degree murder of Brodrick J. "BG" Gipson after he shot him outside The Ball Gentlemen's Club off Alcoa Highway in July 2021.

Garner pulled out a handgun while clashing with Gipson and shot him in the head. Gipson died at the scene, authorities allege.

After a grand jury review, Garner was indicted for voluntary manslaughter and employing a firearm during a dangerous felony. Garner will now face trial on these charges.

The South Knoxville club was shut down for being a public nuisance on June 2, 2022, after authorities said it was a constant source of trouble for the community and law enforcement. 

Garner is due in Knox County Criminal Court on August 4, 2022.
