A man accused of shooting his roommate three times during an argument about him moving out has been granted a $750,000 bond.

William Fernandez, 21, was given a $750,000 bond Tuesday by Judge Bill Locke in General Sessions Court. He had been held without bond since his arrest July 4.

Should he make bond, a condition of that bond is for him to have no weapons. He will also have to wear a GPS monitor should he make bond.

Fernandez is charged for the July 4 shooting of Deven Grove, 25, who was reportedly shot twice in the back and once in the left arm. Grove reportedly told Fernandez to move out before the shooting took place at the home they shared off Sparta Street.

According to a family member on Wednesday, Grove remains hospitalized and the hospital is working on a grant to pay for his medical expenses. He and his doctors have decided to hold off on surgery for now. Surgery will be conducted on his left arm when swelling goes down.

The family hopes to get him into a rehabilitation center as soon as possible so Deven has the best chance of recovering to his full ability. The family is working on opening a bank account where donations can be made and Chabelita’s is donating proceeds from sales this Sunday to his medical fund.
