MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Police are looking to re-arrest the man who they said fired nearly 20 shots outside the McDonald's restaurant in Tillman’s Corner.
Neighbors of Darrin Gaddis said Mobile Police were at his apartment all day Thursday, September 19.
“I had just woken up and they were banging on the door upstairs, and there was a police officer standing in the walkway. The beating and banging woke me up and he told me to go back in and shut the door,” said neighbor Robin Mosley.
Mosley said he saw about four or five police cars throughout the day.
“When I came back out they were parked right there they were waiting for whoever lives up there to come down and they were across the street. So they've pretty much been waiting this place out all day,” he said.
Gaddis was arrested earlier this week in connection to Sunday's shooting outside the restaurant.
Authorities said it happened after Gaddis and his friends got into a dispute with two men. One person was hit in the leg and a bullet grazed another man's belt.
Gaddis was initially charged with second degree assault and shooting into an occupied building.
However, after reviewing the case, Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich said the charges against Gaddis are being upgraded.
Rich said, "When you get a loaded weapon that has 18 rounds in it, and you decide to use that weapon in a public place where people are, then you have intent to kill someone. It's inexcusable conduct in my opinion and so we have these charges of attempted murder."
Officials said there may have been a second shooter in the case.
Mobile police have released the names of three shooting victims. Police say the shooting was the result of domestic violence.
