Police have laid out what happened in the arrest of former Alabama basketball player Darius Miles.

The former Crimson Tide player and Michael Davis were arrested on capital murder charges yesterday after allegedly killing Jamea Jonae Harris in the early morning hours on Sunday.

Harris was killed in horrific fashion after rounds were fired into the car carrying her on The Strip (on Grace Street and University Boulevard).

Now, police have revealed another victim in the car returned fire and successfully hit one of the attackers.

Police break down the details of Darius Miles’ alleged crime.

“A vehicle had stopped there upon sighting a University of Alabama police vehicle and stopped for assistance. That vehicle in addition to the driver contained a deceased female that had been shot. The driver reported their vehicle had been shot into and he had also returned fire and believed he may have struck a suspect,” Tuscaloosa police department captain Jack Kennedy told the press Sunday, according to CNN.

He further told the media that when one of the suspects was located, he “was indeed found to have a non-life threatening gunshot wound.” Kennedy didn’t specify if it was Miles or Davis who had been shot, but in a video of the former basketball player being arrested, he didn’t appear to be wounded.

Both face a capital murder because allegedly firing into a vehicle is an enhancement to the murder charge, according to Kennedy. It has also not yet been confirmed which man allegedly pulled the trigger on the fatal rounds.

The arrest footage of Miles shows him crying and talking about loving someone. He was quickly whisked away and booked into jail.
