A 61-year-old Tuscaloosa man is facing attempted murder charges after firing a shot at one of his family members working at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house located the University of Alabama campus, then stabbing a 28-year-old woman in a separate altercation on Tuesday.

According to a police release, Eugene Kelly, of Tuscaloosa, was allegedly involved in an altercation at approximately 11:09 a.m. at the fraternity house with two family members that are employed by Phi Delta Theta.  During the altercation, Kelly fired a shot at one of the family members, before fleeing the scene.  No one was injured during the incident.

At 11:14 a.m., Tuscaloosa Police responded to a stabbing call at the 1100 Block of 22nd Avenue.  Kelly allegedly entered a residence and stabbed a female who is believed to have had a relationship with the suspect's son.

Kelly then fled the scene in a vehicle before wrecking on University Boulevard at the viaduct over Kicker Road.  Witnesses say that Kelly exited the vehicle and attempted to jump off the bridge, but bystanders were able to hold the suspect down as Tuscaloosa Police officers arrived to apprehend the man.

Kelly was transported to DCH to treat injuries he sustained during the car accident.

The stabbing victim was also transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injures.
