Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA - AL -

Tuscaloosa police have charged two following a shooting early Wednesday morning.

Officers responded to an apartment complex in the 5100 block of 36th Avenue east on shots fired called. When they arrived, they found a 21-year-old female with a gunshot wound to the chest. The victim and friend say they were sitting inside an apartment when several rounds were fired into it. The victim was transported to DCH. A 24-year-old woman and a small child were also in the apartment. They were not hurt.

Investigators later learned there had been an earlier argument at a different location in which the victim's brother, also apartment resident, had been involved. The brother was not in the apartment at the time of the shooting.

Shortly before the shooting was reported, a Tuscaloosa police officer had stopped two suspects for a traffic violation. They were released from the traffic stop. Within a few seconds, the vehicle description was put out over the radio. The officer realized the possible involvement and gave chase to the vehicle. After the pursuit ended, the driver escaped on foot and has not been located. Two other people were arrested, 28-year-old Jamarcus White and 18-year-old Chiquita Williams. They are facing attempted murder and shooting into an occupied dwelling charges. White is also charged with receiving stolen property. Two other firearms were also recovered. Police are looking for the driver who left the vehicle.
