Birmingham police have charged a man with attempted murder in a shooting that happened earlier this week.

Police responded to a shooting in the 1000 block of 20th Street South around 1 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26. A male victim had been shot in the stomach and was taken to the hospital for treatment. He is expected to recover from his injury.

Officers learned that the victim and the suspect got into a verbal fight just before the shooting. The suspect called police to tell him he had been involved and was taken into custody without incident.

White is in custody of the Jefferson County Jail on a $60,000 bond.
