'Armed and dangerous' Selma shooting suspect captured

SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

Captured! Selma police say they've arrested a suspect they considered 'armed and dangerous.' It turned out the 18-year old is a college student.

It allegedly happened Wednesday night in the parking lot of the Cougar Food Mart on Old Cahaba Road. Investigators say Rydreius Hardy had a few choice words with a 19-year old man and then fired three shots at him.

"Our investigation shows the two had an argument over a woman," said Lt. John King.

The intended victim was not hit but at least two of the three shots struck the man's vehicle. Hardy fled the scene and evaded police but not for long.

It all came to an end for Hardy Thursday morning at Wallace Community College. Selma police arrested Hardy in his welding class. The suspect surrendered peacefully.

Lt. King tells WSFA 12 News Hardy did not have a weapon on him in the welding class and fellow students were never in danger. Hardy faces the lone charge of 'shooting a weapon into an unoccupied vehicle.'

"He is giving us statements now and he's cooperating," said Lt. King.

King says the owner of the food mart is considering pressing charges against Hardy since the shootings allegedly took place in the business parking lot.

Wallace Community College leaders confirmed the arrest but declined to say anything more.

From the school house to the jail house, police booked Hardy in the Dallas County Jail. Hardy eventually posted his $60,000 bond. Court records show for now Hardy does not have an attorney.
