Troy Police Department arrested 21 year old Troy man Roderick R. Givens Wednesday afternoon for Attempted Murder, according to information released by Chief Jimmy Ennis. 

At approximately 4:12pm, Troy Police Department officers were dispatched to a reported shooting at a local business in the 800 Block of North Three Notch Street. Officers arrived on the scene to find that a black male had been shot in the right leg with a pistol. The male subject was the only victim and the wound was  non-life threatening.  

Officers en route to the scene had been given a possible vehicle description and a patrolman spotted the vehicle fleeing the area. After a brief search, officers located the vehicle behind a residence on William Street. Officers made contact with a family member of Givens at the home and after a short period of time, Givens came out of the residence and surrendered to officers. 

Givens was transported to the Troy Police Department and after a subsequent investigation, Detectives obtained a Felony Warrant for Attempted Murder. Givens was processed and transported to the Pike County Jail, with his bond being set at $50,000. Givens also had an outstanding Felony Warrant with the Pike County Sheriffs Dept. for Failure To Appear on a previous Possession of Marijuana 1st charge. 

This case remains under investigation by Troy Police Department.
