Mall shooting suspect turns himself in

FAIRFIELD, AL (WBRC) - A man wanted in connection with a shooting Tuesday outside the Western Hills mall in Fairfield has turned himself in.

Fairfield Police, in a statement Wednesday afternoon to FOX6 News, said Roderick Jerome Johnson, 23, of Brighton, turned himself in to authorities around lunch time.

Johnson was wanted in connection with a shooting that occurred Tuesday morning in the parking lot of the Western Hills mall Tuesday morning.  Authorities said the shooting was the result of a verbal fight that occurred between Johnson and four other individuals inside the mall. After the fight was interrupted, the five left the mall. That's when police say Johnson approached the other vehicle and began firing, injuring Cederic Young, 22, of Fairfield, and Stantarius McCall, 18, of Bessemer.  Both were taken to the hospital for treatment of what police described as non life-threatening injuries.

Detectives say Johnson is charged with four counts of attempted murder and shooting into an occupied vehicle. Bond was set at $250,000 for each charge.
