Racine man arrested after shooting at victim in fight "over woman that both had dated"

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 30-year-old Racine man is now charged after allegedly attempting to kill a man in a bar back in 2015.

Brandon Hood faces charges of Attempted First Degree Intentional Homicide, four counts of First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, and Possession of a Firearm by a Felon. 

Racine Police responded to TBG's Bar & Grill, located in the 1800 block of Taylor Avenue, for a report of shots fired on April 23, 2015. Upon arrival, an employee told police that he saw a man standing in the south corner of the parking lot, pointing a gun at a person standing near the door of the bar. The employee heard one shot.

Officers made contact with an individual who was walking in the area of the bar just after the shooting. The individual was armed with a handgun and told police that he got the gun from Hood. The individual told police that Hood asked him to take one of his two guns. The individual also told police that Hood went back to the bar and later told him he shot the guy behind the bar over a woman that the two had both dated.

Cell phone video obtained from a patron at the bar showed Hood firing a gun at the victim.

Police made contact with the victim who was not struck by any of the gunfire.

Hood will have his Preliminary Hearing on March 14.
