Man Charged With Attempted Murder After November Shooting at Tuscaloosa Gas Station
Police in Tuscaloosa have arrested a 23-year-old in connection to a November shooting at a gas station on Skyland Boulevard, according to new court documents filed Friday.
According to the charging documents, the victim walked into the gas station and found another man at the cash register inside.
The man reportedly became hostile and threatened to shoot the victim in his face. The victim stepped outside, but was reportedly followed by the suspect and the two had a brief physical altercation before the victim broke away, got in his car and started to drive away from the scene.
According to the court documents, the aggressor got in his own car where a second man was waiting, and both of them drew weapons and fired shots at the victim who fled the store.
The intended target was not wounded, but a Tuscaloosa Police spokeswoman said a woman was grazed by gunfire and declined medical assistance at the scene.
After weeks of investigation, police have identified the passenger who allegedly opened fire as 23-year-old Mac-shari Dedonte Jackson, who is listed as a resident of Marion, Alabama in nearby Perry County.
Jackson was arrested Thursday and charged with attempted murder. He has since been released on a $60,000 bond. Because is no longer housed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, his mugshot was not publicly available.
The second suspect has yet to be arrested and formally charged. Stay connected to the Tuscaloosa Thread for additional updates on this case as they become available.
