Jadon Malone, 20, is being held in the Metro Jail without bond as the result of his arrest early today for the near fatal shooting of Alando Harris Jr., 22. It happened Monday evening in the 800 block of Dickerson Pike. Malone is charged with attempted murder. Harris, who was shot in the head, is in very critical condition at Skyline Medical Center.
Police say that Harris Jr. accompanied his father, Alando Harris Sr., 44, to Dickerson Pike where Harris Sr. was to meet persons with whom he was having a social media dispute. Gunfire erupted almost immediately as the parties arrived. Harris Sr. drove his wounded son to Treutlan Place from where an ambulance took him to the hospital.
This was a social media post with him holding the gun just before the shooting:
After the shooting, Jadon Malone, of 12th Avenue South, traveled to the James Cayce public housing development and was taken into custody there.
