Man had friend shoot him to avoid court

Posted: Updated:

Tuscaloosa County Homicide investigators are looking into a shooting that may already have been solved.  Homicide investigators responded to a shooting Tuesday in the 1300 block of James I Harrison Parkway.  The 29-year old victim had been shot in his left hand.  The man told investigators he had walked to Watergate Apartments from Forrester Gardens to get his girlfriend a drink.  That's when the man reported an unknown man shot him and then ran.

After further investigating, deputies discovered the victim was supposed to appear in court Wednesday morning.  We're told the victim was brought back from DCH, where he admitted to investigators that he had a friend shoot him so that he wouldn't have to appear in court.  No word on what charges the victim was facing in court.

The case remains under investigation.
