Argument Leads to Shooting in Tuscaloosa Sunday, Suspect Arrested
An argument in West Tuscaloosa ended in gunfire Sunday evening, leaving one person injured and another in jail.
Captain Jack Kennedy, the commander of the multi-agency Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, said officers were called to the 3200 block of 18th Place in West Tuscaloosa around 7:35 Sunday evening.
Kennedy said a "mutual argument" among several people led to one man pulling a gun and shooting another.
The victim was shot once, and Kennedy said their wounds do not appear to be life-threatening.
Investigators collected physical evidence and interviewed witnesses and were quickly able to develop 34-year-old Joseph Baskins as a suspect.
He was arrested Sunday night and charged with attempted murder and discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.
Baskins was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where his combined bond was set at $75,000.
