Atmore Man Charged With Attempted Murder After Alleged Drive-by Shooting

September 21, 2022

An Atmore man has been charged with attempted murder after an alleged drive-by shooting.

Eric Montrey Frye, 31, drove past a residence on Curtis Street and fired twice, according to the Atmore Police Department.

One of the victims followed Frye and provided an update on his location. Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Frye’s vehicle, and he “made several evasive maneuvers and pulled into a driveway”, according to Atmore Police Sgt. Darrell McMann. He was taken into custody without further incident.

Police said a 9mm semi-automatic handgun was recovered from the vehicle.

Frye was booked into the Escambia County (AL) Detention Center without bond.

    To me if you try to kill someone you should be charged as if you did it.
    Why do people get a lesser charge for failing?
