The caregiver of a developmentally disabled man who shot a University of Alabama student outside Another Broken Egg Cafe has completed his jail sentence.
Javaris Deangelo Dubose, 30, was charged with reckless endangerment and tampering with physical evidence after shooting on Sept. 16. He was caring for a developmentally disabled man, 28, who found a gun and began firing when Dubose went inside the restaurant to reserve a table, police said.
A 21-year-old University of Alabama student was struck in the arm as he was exiting the busy restaurant along Tuscaloosa's Riverwalk, which was crowded with Sunday brunch customers. Bullets also struck the restaurant, on the ground floor of a three-story building that houses a mix or retail and office space. The shooter was not charged.
Dubose told officers he returned to his car and saw bullet holes before he put the gun in his trunk and drove away. Officers caught up with him several miles away on Hackberry Lane.
Dubose was charged with reckless endangerment and tampering with evidence, both misdemeanors. He reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to the reckless endangerment charge with the evidence tampering charge dismissed, according to court records.
He was sentenced to serve nine days in jail, which he served in 48-hour increments and one 24-hour increment during October and November. He will be sentenced to serve 90 days if he re-offends during a two year probation period, according to the court file.
