Tuscaloosa Police Release Surveillance Photos of Shooting Suspect
Police in Tuscaloosa have released surveillance images of a man investigators believe was involved in a shooting at a gas station on Skyland Boulevard Monday.
Captain Marty Sellers, the co-commander of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, said officers were called to the Marathon gas station in the 2000 Block of Skyland Boulevard around 5 p.m. Monday.
A man had been shot there but had left the area in a private vehicle on the way to an area hospital. The victim, a 34-year-old man, was shot in the leg, treated for his injuries and is expected to survive.
While police were processing the scene at the gas station, one man allegedly involved in the shooting came back to the scene, surrendered a firearm and turned himself in to police officers there.
The man, 35-year-old Marcedes Turner, has been charged with attempted murder, robbery and illegally possessing a firearm in the case.
Police are still seeking a second man who was allegedly involved in the shooting, and Tuesday afternoon, they released images of the suspect captured on surveillance cameras in the area.
