A man accused of shooting his girlfriend last month at the Fairfield Inn will have his case heard by a grand jury.

Court documents show Houston County Judge Benjamin Lewis recently bound Tyshawn William Fearrington’s attempted murder case over to a grand jury and reduced his bond amounts.

Documents show Lewis reduced Fearrington’s bonds from $400,000 to $90,000 -- a $60,000 bond was set for the charge of attempted murder and a $30,000 bond for the charge of shooting into an occupied building. Lewis also informed Fearrington that once he posted bond he was not allowed to have any contact with the victim or the Fairfield Inn, and he is not to possess any firearm.

Fearrington remains in the Houston County Jail.

The shooting occurred during a domestic dispute at about 2:20 a.m. Sunday, May 19, at Dothan’s Fairfield Inn, just off Ross Clark Circle near Applebee’s restaurant.

Fearrington turned himself in, said Dothan Police Lt. Lynn Watkins.

The victim, who was shot twice, stumbled down the hall to the front desk of the crowded hotel, leaving a bloody trail.

The woman was transported to a local hospital where she is expected to recover from her injuries.

Court documents show that, other than traffic violations, Fearrington does not have a criminal history.
