Northport Man Charged with Attempted Murder After Near-Fatal Shooting
A 25-year-old Northport man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after a near-fatal shooting in the city earlier this month.
According to new court documents filed Monday afternoon, the incident was reported just before 1 a.m. on the morning of Saturday, December 4th.
In the charging documents, investigators said the victim, a 36-year-old man, was at his ex-girlfriend's mother's house in Northport when a second man pulled up in and stepped out of a vehicle.
The second man, who police have identified as 25-year-old Antorian Ricarter Deshawn Cameron, allegedly opened fire on the victim almost immediately upon exiting his car.
The victim ran away toward a nearby field and was struck by multiple projectiles, which left him with a life-threatening injury, according to the deposition.
Cameron allegedly got back in his car and fled the area. Investigators discovered seven shell casings at the scene of the shooting.
Police caught up with Cameron almost two weeks after the shooting and arrested him on Friday. He was charged with one count of attempted murder and placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail.
Cameron remained jailed Tuesday afternoon with a bond set at $60,000.
