They arrived at the Marathon gas station, where a man had been shot in the leg but had left the area to drive himself to the hospital The victim was later stopped in a different area and transported to DCH Regional Medical Center.

Soon after they arrived at the gas station where the shooting originally took place, a 35-year-old Tuscaloosa man identified as Marcedes Turner turned himself into police at the gas station and surrendered a firearm to the officers there.


Investigators believe the shooting stemmed from an argument at the gas station between Turner, the victim and a third man who has yet to be publicly identified.

Turner was charged with attempted murder and illegally possessing a firearm, and investigators also charged him with robbery in relation to a previous incident.

Turner was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail and a bond had not been set for him at 12:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Sellers said the third man is still being sought in the incident.

If anyone has information on the shooting they are encouraged to contact Tuscaloosa Police or the Tuscaloosa County Violent Crimes Unit.
