Man Arrested After May Gas Station Gunfight in Tuscaloosa
A Tuscaloosa man has been charged with a felony in connection to a gunfight at a local gas station that left one person injured in May.
As the Thread reported at the time, police were called to the Quick Stop gas station at 10th Avenue and Hargrove Road around 1:15 on May 24th on reports of a shooting there, which was the second one in as many days.
At the time, Captain Marty Sellers of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit said two men exchanged gunfire at or near the gas station and one male victim was injured with injuries that were not life-threatening.
In court documents filed Monday, investigators said store surveillance footage confirmed early reports and showed two men shooting at each other in the parking lot of the business.
Police believe they have identified one shooter as 25-year-old Dekarrius Tremel Graham, who was arrested Sunday. Graham is charged with discharging a firearm into an occupied building, which is a Class B felony.
Investigators said based on the trajectory of the shots Graham allegedly took, at least one of his bullets pass through the front door of the gas station, where a clerk was inside working.
Graham was booked in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where his bond was set at $30,000. Police have not yet arrested the second man believed to be involved in this shooting.
