Danville man charged with attempted murder in girlfriend's shooting

DANVILLE — A Danville man is facing charges of attempted murder after allegedly shooting his girlfriend in the head Saturday night over suspicions of infidelity.

Vermilion County State's Attorney Jacqueline Lacy revealed the new details after Bryant Marshall Jr., 26, who listed an address in the 400 block of North Washington Avenue, was arraigned Monday on four counts of attempted first-degree murder and four counts of aggravated battery with a firearm. If convicted of the most-serious charges, he faces up to life in prison.

Marshall's bond was set at $2 million; he is due back in court Jan. 4.

Lacy said Marshall was arguing with the 29-year-old victim at a house in the 300 block of Washington, then went outside and hid in the back seat of a truck. Lacy said when the woman came outside, Marshall shot her, hitting her three times in the head.

The woman was rushed to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, where she was listed in critical condition Monday.

Lacy said Marshall surrendered to police officers who responded to the call, saying "she pushed me to do it." Police found the gun that was used.
