An east Birmingham store employee is under arrest after a shooting earlier this week.
Mazin Othman, a 40-year-old employee of the Chevron at 125 Oporto Madrid Boulevard, is charged with second-degree assault and discharging a gun into an occupied dwelling.
East Precinct officers responded at 8:46 p.m. Monday to a Shot Spotter notification in the area of the store. Minutes later, said Sgt. Monica Law, police received a 911 call reporting that a man had been shot.
The victim was taken to UAB Hospital. The extent of his injury and a possible motive has not been released by police.
Law said community members provided information that led investigators to believe that Othman, of Hoover, was the shooter. Othman was taken into custody for an investigative hold until formal warrants were obtained on Wednesday.
Othman was booked into the Jefferson County Jail at 4:23 p.m. Wednesday and released at 2:40 a.m. today after posting $45,000 bond.
Anyone with additional information on the case is asked to call investigators with the Felony Assault Unit at 205-254-1764 or Crime Stoppers 205-254-7777.
