TROY, Ala. (WDHN) – A man has been charged with three counts of attempted murder following an incident that ended in the parking lot of the Troy Police Department Sunday afternoon.
Troy Police say officers received a call about a person chasing and firing shots at a vehicle. Three women were inside the vehicle.
The vehicles drove by the Troy Police Department on East Elm Street. Officers then followed and attempted to stop the vehicles. The chase circled back around, and the vehicles eventually stopped in the parking lot of the Troy Police Department.
The man got out of his vehicle and fired a gun shot into the back seat of the other vehicle, striking a passenger, according to police.
“The responding officer arrived in the parking lot just after the shot and confronted the offender,” police said. “The offender threw his gun down and was taken into custody without incident.”
Troy Police identified the shooter as Henry Barr, 51, of Troy.
The 44-year-old victim was taken to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening wound to her hand. She was treated and released.
During the investigation, police learned Barr and the victim were dating one another. Two other people in the first vehicle were not injured.
“Detectives spoke with all parties involved and Barr was charged with three counts of attempted murder along with three counts of shooting into an occupied vehicle,” police said.
Barr is behind bars at the Pike County Jail. Bond was set at $375,000. Troy Police said additional charges may be filed in the case.
