Second man charged with attempted homicide in near-fatal North Side shooting 2 | criminality
As expected, a Madison man who was arrested late last month in a September shooting that left two men seriously injured was charged Tuesday with two counts of attempted first degree murder.
Cordell K. Corner, 21, was also charged Tuesday in a criminal complaint of reckless first degree endangerment and possession of a firearm by someone previously found to be a juvenile delinquent.
Corner and Cortez M. Talley, 28, of Madison, face charges of attempted homicide for the September 30 incident in the 1400 block of Northport Drive on the north side of Madison, in which two men were shot. Nearby buildings were hit by gunfire, but no passerby was injured.
Corner appeared in court on Tuesday, where he was sentenced to $ 250,000 bail. Talley, who was charged on October 29, remains in jail on $ 100,000 bail. Corner will return to court for a preliminary hearing on December 23.
According to the criminal complaint:
Police arrived at the scene and found a man shot in the head and leg. Another who was shot in the leg needed several tourniquets to stop the potentially fatal bleeding. This man also had a gunshot wound to his right forearm.
Surveillance video showed Talley firing the shots, then entering a dark-colored Buick that left the scene. The video also showed a second shooter, identified as Corner, who is Talley’s brother.
