Suspect Accused of Shooting 2 Bibb County Deputies Wednesday Captured Alive
The 26-year-old accused of shooting two sheriff's deputies in Bibb County, Alabama Wednesday has been captured alive, law enforcement sources have confirmed.
The suspect, Austin Patrick Hall, allegedly opened fire on the law enforcement officers during a pursuit near Six Mile, Alabama.
Hall, who has an extensive and sometimes violent criminal history in the state, was allegedly driving a stolen vehicle when the chase began.
At some point during the pursuit Wednesday evening, Hall opened fire on two deputies and wounded both. As of Thursday morning, one has been released from hospital treatment in fair condition. The second deputy, who was reportedly shot in the head, remained in critical condition.
Hall reportedly ditched the stolen vehicle in a rural part of Bibb County and ran into the woods, where he hid from police Wednesday night and Thursday morning before he was finally captured.
