According to police, the incident apparently stemmed from an altercation that began downtown and ended near the intersection of Plant Street and Etheridge Avenue.

Marks was struck by a single gunshot to the chest, and remains hospitalized, police said.

Police said two eyewitnesses saw Chapman get out of his vehicle and open fire, which led to his arrest.
