Boligee Man Charged with Attempted Murder for Opening Fire on Woman in Tuscaloosa
A West Alabama man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly opened fire on a woman outside a Tuscaloosa apartment in November.
According to new court documents filed Tuesday, Tuscaloosa Police Officers received multiple 911 calls on the night of November 13th after a series of gunshots rang out on 33rd Street East.
Officers rushed to the scene, but found only spent shell casings in the area -- the shooter had already fled.
According to the deposition, investigators spoke with the woman they believe was the intended victim. She said around 8 o'clock that night, she stepped outside of an apartment in the area and the shooter exited a grey sedan and began firing in her direction. They fired at least four shots, but the woman was not injured in the incident.
The case was turned over to the multi-agency Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, whose investigators handle all shootings and homicides that occur within Tuscaloosa County.
After interviewing witnesses and collecting evidence, the VCU was able to develop Alvante Diatwan Daniels as their suspect in the shooting.
Daniels, who is listed as a resident of Boligee, Alabama in Greene County, was wanted for several months before he was finally arrested Monday.
In addition to being charged with attempted murder for the shooting, Daniels faces two misdemeanor charges for possession of marijuana at the time of his arrest.
His combined bond was set at $67,500, and he remained jailed late Tuesday afternoon.
