A woman told police a gunman fired at her and a man in their vehicle because “we had bad blood,” a police spokesman said.

Allen Donell Chatman Jr., 32, of Gulfport, is accused of firing multiple shots at a vehicle the couple was in, but the bullets didn’t strike the couple, Police Sgt. Joshua Bromen said.

Police responded to a call of a shooting at 2:33 p.m. Tuesday in the 3300 block of 39th Avenue.

Bromen said Chatman and the couple had an ongoing argument.

Investigators obtained a warrant for Chatman’s arrest and took him into custody on Wednesday.

Chatman was booked Wednesday at the Harrison County jail, where he was held on a $200,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Diane Ladner.
