A 23-year-old Opelika man is facing an attempted murder charge after a shooting left one injured at a student-housing complex Sunday.

Demarrius Travell Bridges turned himself in Monday at the Auburn Police Division and was taken into custody by detectives, according to police.

Bridges is charged with attempted murder, Auburn police said in a Monday news release.

The charge and arrest stem from a shooting that injured a 22-year-old man Sunday in the 1100 block of South College Street, police said.

Shots fired

Officers responded to the apartment complex about 4 p.m. Sunday to a report of shots fired.

The suspect, later identified as Bridges, was seen running from the scene in a black, hooded jacket, authorities reported Sunday.

Authorities believe the victim and Bridges knew one another and the shooting was a result of an altercation.

Bridges is being held in the Lee County Jail on a $75,000 bond, police said.

The victim was transported to Piedmont Columbus Regional Medical Center for injuries not believed to be life-threatening injuries and is in stable condition, according to police.

The case is still under investigation. Authorities ask that anyone with information on the incident call the Auburn Police Division at 334-501-2140 or the tip line at 334-246-1391.
