SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

The Selma Police Department says it's made an arrest and charged a man with attempted murder following a March, 24, 2013 shooting on Hardie Avenue.

SPD detectives, with members of the U.S. Marshal Fugitive Task Force, took William Earl Calhoun into custody Monday at the Chanticleer Apartments. He's now charged with attempted murder and discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling.

Police say during Calhoun's arrest they took two additional people into custody who admitted they knew the suspect was wanted by police but did not turn him in. Jmilia Walker and Keona Hurt were allowing Calhoun to seek shelter and transportation, Police Chief William T. Riley III said.

As a result, Walker and Hurt were charged with Hindering Prosecution 1st, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 2nd and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. The two additional charges came as authorities arrested Calhoun at the apartment and discovered marijuana on a table in a room occupied by small children.

Calhoun is being held on a bond totaling $2.7 million.

Walker and Hurt are being held on bonds totaling $28,000.
