A suspect in the Montgomery shooting that left an innocent woman paralyzed was released on bail after being arrested on charges related to the crime over the weekend.

Michael Lamar Johnson, 20, was released from the Montgomery County Detention Center on a $90,000 bond. Johnson faces one charge of first-degree assault and two charges of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

In April, Amy Dicks was struck by a bullet in a crossfire while stopped at a red light on the Atlanta Highway. Dicks was rushed to the hospital, where she was treated for her wounds. The family afterward announced that Dicks was paralyzed from the chest down as a result of the shooting. She is still recovering from her injuries.

Johnson was arrested in Pelham over the weekend. He later made bail and was released from the Montgomery County Detention Facility.

Dicks’ shooting led to mass outrage on the part of the Montgomery community, which swarmed Montgomery City Hall the following days, speaking in opposition to Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed and the rampant crime in the city.
