Bond is set at $2 million for a 60-year-old central Illinois man accused of shooting a contractor five times in a dispute over home improvement work.

David Bauer of Decatur is charged with attempted murder in the shooting of 46-year-old Alan Goodwin.

Goodwin is in critical condition, and his wife says he has bullets lodged in his left lung, liver and kidneys.

Goodwin is the owner of A-1 Construction Inc.

Bauer was unhappy with work that Goodwin had been performing at his home.

Goodwin told police that he was talking to Bauer's mother about the work Wednesday morning when Bauer came out of a back room and started shooting.

Police say Bauer was holding a .38-caliber handgun when officers arrived.
