The man who fired a shot at a University of Alabama fraternity house Tuesday later stabbed a woman and wrecked his car, according to police.
Suspect Eugene Kelly, 61, was at DCH Regional Medical Center Tuesday afternoon, recovering from injuries from the wreck. The 28-year-old stabbing victim was also being treated there for injuries that were not life-threatening, said Tuscaloosa Police Sgt. Brent Blankley.
The University of Alabama Police Department received a call at 11:09 a.m. that a shot had been fired at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house on University Boulevard. Kelly fired a shot during an argument with his wife, a fraternity employee, and another family member who is also a fraternity employee, Blankley said. No one was injured at the fraternity house.
Kelly left the fraternity house and went to a home in the 1100 block of 22nd Avenue East, Blankley said, where he was accused of stabbing a 28-year-old woman who is in a relationship with his son. Kelly then crashed his vehicle on Kicker Road, under the University Boulevard bridge, Blankley said.
Witnesses said Kelly got out of the car and attempted to jump off the bridge, but bystanders held him down until TPD officers arrived to take him into custody.
Kelly will be booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail when he is released from DCH, he said.
Kelly will be charged with attempted murder. The Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit is investigating and will likely add more charges.
