Declante Jermaine Phillips turned himself in to police Thursday, January 16.
According to investigators, the victim told them he was giving a friend a ride to a hotel on the I-65 West Service Road. But when he pulled his vehicle around back of the hotel, that's when things went south.
Police say the victim, told them a man got out of the passenger side of a white pick-up, with a gun in his hand, and then started shooting, hitting the victim at least once. The victim managed to get to a hospital where he was treated for a serious gunshot wound. He's expected to recover. The victim claims he didn't know Phillips, and has no idea why he was shot.
