A Tuscaloosa man has been arrested and charged with first-degree assault six months after he allegedly shot another man over a parking spot, according to court documents filed this week.

In a deposition obtained by the Thread, investigators said the incident took place on the night of December 13th in west Tuscaloosa in front of a residence on Short 17th Street.

Police say the victim lived there and the alleged shooter, 23-year-old Ke'derien Tre'von Irby, parked in front of his house.

When the resident confronted Irby about taking the space, Irby "responded by producing a handgun and shooting" the other man, striking his lower leg and causing "severe damage."

Irby, a Tuscaloosa man police say is also known as "Lil Bruh," was identified as a suspect within weeks, but evaded arrest until earlier this week.

He was arrested Monday, charged with first-degree assault and booked in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where he remained Wednesday with a bond set at $30,000.
