SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

A man who was out on bond is now charged with attempted murder after Selma police say he shot someone in the face.

Jeffery Harris, 39, was identified as the suspect in the Wednesday night incident.

According to Selma Police Chief Spencer Collier, Harris and the victim got into a fight at the mobile home park on Water Avenue where Harris lives.

The victim was the passenger in a vehicle and Harris started beating him while he was still in the car, the chief said.

The driver took off in an effort to get away and Harris shot at the vehicle, but at first didn’t hit anyone.

There is only one way out of the trailer park so when the car turned around and tried to leave, Collier says Harris fired at the vehicle again, striking the victim in the face.

“His eye was shot out,” the chief said.

The victim was rushed to the emergency room at Vaughan Regional Medical Center in Selma and later transferred to UAB Hospital in Birmingham. Police could not provide an update on his condition.

Harris was arrested and charged with attempted murder, discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle and discharging a firearm into an unoccupied residence.

According to Collier, Harris also shot into homes in the area during the attack.

“He was already out on bond for two violent felonies,” the chief added.

There’s been an ongoing dispute between Harris and the victim, police indicated. Detectives haven't been able to interview the victim in the hospital yet.

Harris’ mother, Gloria Haynes, was also arrested and charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence.

He appeared in court Friday morning and was given a “no bond.” He remains in the Dallas County Jail.
