PB man accused in shooting incident


A Pine Bluff man who was charged with aggravated assault and committing a terroristic act last week was back in court Monday facing an attempted murder allegation.

Courtney Lane, 24, allegedly shot Jamar Williams on July 14, Detective James Huff said in a probable-cause affidavit that was presented in court.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said police found Williams on the ground when they were sent to the 600 block of Belmont Drive, and he was taken to Jefferson Regional Medical Center for wounds to the chest, arm, leg and stomach.

Huff said in the affidavit that Williams identified Lane, telling police “C-Lane shot me.”

Kizer said Williams said a black car pulled up and “shots were fired from the car.”

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $250,000 bond for Lane after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with criminal attempt capital murder.

Lane was also ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled, and told to come back to court Aug. 29.

Lane said he would hire his own attorney.
