A Virginia man accused of shooting another man Sunday at a Portland car wash has been ordered held on $100,000 bail.

Abdul Rahman Timbo, 23, has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.

According to police, Timbo shot another man during an argument at the ScrubaDub Car Wash at Morrill’s Corner on Forest Avenue shortly after noon Sunday.

The victim fled after the shooting, but was later located and interviewed by police. He didn’t need medical attention, police said.

Timbo was taken into custody a short distance from the car wash by police who had responded to the report of a shooting.

Police have said the two knew each other but have not said what was involved in the argument that led to the shooting.

Temma Donahue, Timbo’s court-appointed lawyer, said she was assigned the case Tuesday and didn’t know details, including what the alleged argument was about.

She declined to oppose the state’s request for $100,000 bail at a hearing Tuesday afternoon, but said she may file a motion for lower bail in the future.
