A Belle Glade man is facing an attempted murder charge after deputies say he walked up to and shot another man back in July. 

On July 25th, around 7 P.M., deputies found a man with a gunshot wound, while responding to a shooting in the area of SW 6th Street and SW Avenue D.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment, investigators say. An investigation led detectives to 19-year-old Jimmy Porter, Jr.

Porter was booked into the Palm Beach County jail today and is being held on no bond. He will be in court tomorrow.
