A Jackson man sought by police after an Alamo man was injured and his 5-year-old niece was grazed in a shooting surrendered Tuesday, according to a Tuesday afternoon news release from the Jackson Police Department.

Police said 27-year-old Corey Gray surrendered at the J. Alexander Leech Criminal Justice Complex, located at 515 S. Liberty St., around noon Tuesday. Gray was wanted for attempted murder and four counts of aggravated assault in a shooting that occurred in the parking lot of the Madison County Sheriff's Office, located at 546 E. College St.

Gray, who was being held at the Madison County Jail Tuesday night, is scheduled to be arraigned in Jackson City Court, via video link, on Wednesday at 8 a.m.

Police said around 12:20 p.m. on Nov. 9, Jackson police were called about a shooting. A 24-year-old Alamo man, who was injured in the shooting, had driven to the Madison County Criminal Justice Complex. The man's sister, 8-month-old nephew and 5-year-old niece were also in the car.

The man had a gunshot wound to the back. The 5-year-old girl had a grazing gunshot wound to the shoulder. The girl was taken to the hospital by private vehicle and the man was transported to the hospital by ambulance.

The man and girl were treated and released from Jackson-Madison County General Hospital.

Police said investigators learned that the man had just left his sister's Jackson home with his relatives. While he was driving, he noticed a white Chevy Trailblazer following him.

The man pulled onto the parking lot of the Madison County Sheriff's Office, in an attempt to stop the SUV from following him. The SUV also pulled onto the parking lot and multiple shots were fired from the SUV and into the man's car. The man then drove to the Criminal Justice Complex for help.

Police said investigators have identified Gray as the driver of the SUV. Investigators also believe he was armed with a handgun.

Police do not believe the shooting was a random act of violence, according to their investigation. The Madison County Sheriff's Department assisted in the investigation.
