A man is in custody on five attempted murder charges after Tallahassee police say he opened fire on a car Wednesday night.
Dylan Riley, 18, was arrested by the Tallahassee Police Department Thursday after the incident on Pecan Road at about 7:30 p.m. the night before. He faces five counts of attempted second-degree murder.
Investigators say Riley was among a group of people blocking the road near an apartment complex when a car of five women tried to leave the complex.
The driver went around the group blocking the road when TPD says Riley fired multiple rounds at the car. One woman was hit and suffered serious injuries and police determined the victims were unknown to the suspect.
The incident was the second time a woman was injured by gunfire in northwest Tallahassee in a 12-hour span. Just after midnight, a woman was shot at an apartment complex while a suspect robbed her.
There have been at least 89 serious shootings in Tallahassee and the county this year, resulting in at least 63 injuries and 15 deaths, according to an analysis of gun violence by the Tallahassee Democrat.
