Shooting at University Manor Leads to Attempted Murder Arrest
A shooting at University Manor Apartments in Tuscaloosa earlier this month has led to the arrest of a 28-year-old man charged Wednesday with attempted murder.
Captain Jack Kennedy, the commander of the multi-agency Violent Crimes Unit, said police responded to the apartments on 29th Place on December 1st after a man there reported that someone had fired several shots at him.
Kennedy said the victim was inside his vehicle when he was allegedly approached by Bruce Thomas, 28, who drew a gun and fired at him several times.
The victim was not injured, but his vehicle was hit by several bullets.
Kennedy said the motive appears to be an ongoing personal disagreement between the two men.
After interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence, investigators obtained warrants to charge Thomas was attempted murder and were able to take him into custody Wednesday.
Thomas also had his probation revoked on previous arrests on robbery and kidnapping charges.
He remained in the Tuscaloosa County Jail Thursday morning.
