A man wanted in connection with a six-year-old shooting in Albany is in Linn County Jail facing attempted murder and other charges.

Heriberto Gonzalez is accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend during a dispute in 2007. He is scheduled to appear Monday in Linn County Circuit Court. His initial bail was set at $1 million.

The Democrat-Herald reports (http://is.gd/y6Wikj ) that the 26-year-old also faces charges of second-degree assault, first-degree burglary and unlawful use of a weapon.

Albany police said in 2007 that Gonzalez, then 20, showed up at his ex-girlfriend's home, threatened to kill her and her new boyfriend, and then fired a several rounds.

Authorities initially believed that Gonzalez fled to California because he had relatives there.
