An Oxford man is charged with attempted murder and other charges related to an April 29 shooting in the parking lot of a Noble Street convenience store.

And the Anniston woman who was shot in the chest during the incident has been released from UAB Hospital. Her injuries are no longer life-threatening, according to a Friday press release from Anniston police.

Carey Lamont Richardson, 21, was arrested Thursday evening and charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault and third-degree criminal trespassing, the press release said.

Richardson is the second person to be charged in the case. Investigators arrested Anniston resident Michael Anthony Brown, 23, on a felony assault charge a couple of hours after the shooting occurred.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of the Discount Food Mart at 2630 Noble St. between 4:30 and 5:15 p.m. on April 29.

Doggrell said the shooting could possibly be traced back to feuding between “two groups of people” that had gone on all day but the sergeant declined to further identify those two different groups. The 38-year-old female victim was shot in the chest and was not acquainted with the suspects in the case.

Police said the investigation is not over.

Brown post a $15,000 bail bond and was released on May 1 from the Anniston City Jail.

Richardson’s bail is set at $40,800.
