A Tuscaloosa man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly followed another man from Northport to southeast Tuscaloosa before opening fire on his truck three separate times.

According to a new deposition filed this week, on Monday night, 28-year-old Jose Aldredo Garcia, Jr. chased his victim, who was driving a pickup truck, from somewhere in Northport to the 6500 Block of Hargrove Road East - a ten-mile drive depending on where it began north of the Black Warrior.

Investigators say in that area of Tuscaloosa, Garcia "shot out of his moving vehicle into the vehicle in front of him," - the pickup being driven by his target.

According to the court documents, the victim immediately pulled over and Garcia drove past, only to turn around and fire at the pickup again.

The victim's vehicle was struck several times during the attack, and he reportedly drove away to a family member's residence - police say Garcia followed and opened fire a third time before leaving the scene.

Garcia was located and arrested the following day - investigators say he confessed to the shootings after he was read his Miranda rights.

The Tuscaloosa 28-year-old was charged with one count of attempted murder and one count of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

He remained in the Tuscaloosa County Jail Friday on a consolidated $60,000 bond.
