A Kennesaw man has been charged with murder in connection with a shooting at Hooligans Tavern, a bar located on Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell.

James Densmore, 30, was arrested and charged by the Roswell Police Department after the shooting, which happened at approximately 10:50 p.m. Friday, according to police.

Police had responded to reports of a man shooting another man inside the bar. Upon arrival they found one victim, Hassan Golden, 37, of Norcross, with multiple gunshot wounds, police said.

Golden was taken to a local hospital in critical condition and later died there, according to the Roswell Police Department.
