A 35-year-old South Boston man, Steve Aaron Gregory Jr., was indicted Thursday on 12 counts related to a shooting incident on Aug. 4 on Seymour Drive in South Boston, including two for attempted murder.
Gregory was indicted Thursday on one felony count for the attempted murder of Cordaro Wilson and one felony count for the attempted murder of Jaleel Palmer in addition to felony counts for the attempted malicious wounding of Wilson and Palmer.
In addition, Gregory was indicted for a pair of felony counts for use of a firearm in the attempted murder or attempted malicious wounding of Wilson and Palmer, possession of a firearm as a convicted felon, discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle and maliciously shooting at a motor vehicle occupied by one or more persons.
The grand jury also indicted Gregory for three misdemeanors including reckless handing of a firearm and reckless driving.
An indictment is issued by a grand jury against an individual who is charged with a crime. Before the individual may be convicted, the charge must be proved at trial beyond a reasonable doubt. The purpose of an indictment is to inform an accused individual of the charge against him or her so that the person will be able to prepare a defense.
All alleged offenses occurred on Aug. 4, according to court records.
Gregory was indicted for offenses related to shots fired into a moving vehicle at about 2 a.m. on Aug. 4 on Seymour Drive, according to a South Boston police report.
Officers responded to the scene after getting a report that someone had been shot at, according to Randy E. Redd, patrol lieutenant.
Officers found what appeared to be four bullet holes in a 2007 Range Rover.
According to witnesses, the driver of a 2014 Audi pulled up beside the Range Rover on Seymour Drive and fired at least four shots into the Range Rover, while both vehicles were moving, Redd said.
No one was injured in the incident.
Police identified the suspect as Gregory, according to Redd.
