A 17-year-old male Wednesday was charged with attempted murder in relation to a shooting at an Anniston gas station Friday in which two people were injured.

Quindarious Malik Sterling, of Anniston, was charged as an adult with attempted murder and discharging a firearm into an occupied building, both felonies, according to online court records.

Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks said he would not confirm Sterling’s name as the alleged shooter.

The warrant for Sterling’s arrest states that on Aug. 16 the teen attempted to intentionally cause the death of Diontay Derel Miliner by shooting him with a firearm.

Anniston police told The Star on Monday that a 23-year-old Gadsden man was shot in the chest after an argument with the suspect outside the Shell gas station at 18th Street and Quintard Avenue.

The second warrant states that Sterling discharged a firearm into a building occupied by Kim Curry.

According to police, a 21-year-old woman from Oxford who was shopping inside the store had her arm grazed by a bullet and suffered cuts to her neck, arms and face from glass window fragments. Both victims were taken to Regional Medical Center for treatment and were released Friday night, police said.

Police identified the teen through a review of the store’s surveillance video footage and witness testimony, Sparks said. Investigators said the victims did not know the suspect.

Sterling’s cash bond is set at $50,000. He was in the Calhoun County Jail Wednesday afternoon. A court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 30.
