The Carbondale Police Department arrested a man they say is the suspect of a Sunday shooting that left a victim with life threatening injuries.

A $1 million bond has been set for Quentin M. Bailey, 21, of Carbondale, who was identified as the suspect and arrested by police Monday on a warrant for aggravated discharge of a firearm and aggravated battery with a firearm.

Carbondale police responded to a report of a gunshot victim Sunday at the Memorial Hospital of Carbondale. The victim was shot “during an argument between acquaintances which occurred inside a parked vehicle in the 2400 block of East Main Street,” according to a press release.
