A Mahoning County grand jury indicted a man on attempted murder charges for a March 15 shooting on South Avenue that left another man with a head wound.

Dashonti Baker, 21, who has addresses on Shady Run Road and in Columbus, was indicted Thursday on the charges of attempted murder and two counts of felonious assault with firearms specifications.

He is accused of shooting Jaquez Brown, 21, who was a passenger in an SUV parked in the parking lot at a South Avenue convenience store near Dewey Avenue with three other people when someone in another vehicle fired several shots at the SUV. Brown was hit in the head and treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center.
