SELMA, AL (WSFA) - Bonds of $1 million each have been set for the three suspects arrested in connection with the beating and shooting of a man Thursday afternoon.
The Selma Police Department Special Operations Unit Facebook page posted the mugshot of Selma resident Laddarius "Bo" Parker, 19, after he turned himself in Sunday. He was the third suspect wanted for the shooting and beating. He is charged with first-degree assault and it at the Dallas County Jail.
Police Chief Spencer Collier said the alleged shooter, 18-year-old local resident Chance Manta Barnett, was taken into custody without incident late Friday afternoon. He's booked at the Dallas County Jail on a first-degree assault charge.
Barnett's arrest came after 15-year-old Georgio Howell, also of Selma, was taken into custody earlier in the day. He's charged as an adult with the same felony as Barnett.
The shooting happened around 2:10 p.m. Thursday, near the Winn Dixie at the intersection of Dallas Avenue and Chisholm Drive, Collier said.
The victim, 20-year-old Jadarius Richardson, was taken to a local hospital before being transferred to UAB Hospital in Birmingham. He's in stable condition.
Collier said the victim and suspects knew each other and he's confident the shooting was not a random act. He said the initial investigation shows the beating and shooting "appears to be a crime of opportunity when the suspects spotted the victim."
The chief requested and received assistance from both state and federal law enforcement agencies.
Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson said a judge has appointed attorneys for the suspects. Preliminary hearing dates for all three are set for Aug. 7.
