TRUSSVILLE — The cases of two men charged in a drive-by shooting in Trussville are headed to a Grand Jury in Jefferson County.

Trussville investigators said the two had a disagreement with someone at a home on Vanessa Drive on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. The home was shot into but no one was hurt. Johnson and Minter were taken into custody by Trussville Police, on Highway 11, shortly after the shooting.

Johnson and Minter both posted a $25,000 bond and both were released.
According to court documents, Johnson appeared in court for a preliminary hearing on Thursday, Sept. 5. The court heard evidence of whether probable cause existed in the case. The court found that there was enough probable cause for the case to be presented to the Grand Jury.
Minter waived his preliminary hearing on Aug. 19, and his case was bound over to the Circuit Court to await the action of the Grand Jury.
