2 arrested in Florence for attempted murder

FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – A man and a teenage boy have been arrested following a drive-by shooting, according to Florence police.

At approximately 5:45 p.m. on Friday, March 4, officers responded to a call for gunfire in the West Cleveland Avenue area. When they arrived at the scene, police found a casing in the 500 block of the area, along with a few witnesses.

These witnesses told the police that a vehicle had stopped and started shooting at a man. This man fled during the shooting and does not appear to have been shot.

Later that day, officers were able to find the man being shot and he identified the shooters as Kareem Carter and another teenager.

The man told officers the two began shooting at him while he was in his vehicle at Oak Ridge Apartments. He then started running and ended up in West Cleveland, where he encountered the pair again, when they started shooting him a second time.

An investigation led to the issuance of warrants for Carter and the teenager.

Officials said the two suspects turned themselves in to police on Wednesday, March 16, and were taken to the Lauderdale County Detention Center.

Both face charges of attempted murder, burglary of vehicle, third degree theft of property and reckless endangerment.

They are currently each held on a $64,000 bond.
