A Columbus man was arraigned Tuesday on an attempted murder charge and two other felonies after being accused of shooting a 20-year-old man in the neck June 16.

Jimmie DeWayne Hair Jr., 26, of 1126 California St., was formally charged Monday in connection with the shooting with attempted murder, a Class A felony; aggravated battery, a Class B felony; and unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, a Class B felony.

Hair appeared on video from the Bartholomew County Jail during Tuesday's initial hearing in Bartholomew Superior Court 1. Judge James Worton set bond at $500,000 surety or $50,000 cash, and appointed public defender Aaron Edwards to represent Hair.
