Man Shoots Woman He Was “Only Trying to Scare” in Tuscaloosa, Alabama
A Tuscaloosa man has been charged with felony assault after he allegedly shot a woman he was "only trying to scare" last week, according to court documents filed Monday.
In a new deposition, investigators said the victim arrived at DCH Regional Medical Center last Friday with a gunshot wound to her right foot. The injury was not life-threatening.
Police determined the woman was shot at a residence on 11th Street near Highway 69 in downtown Tuscaloosa. Investigators found two shell casings and blood in the yard of the home.
Officers developed 39-year-old Shannon Leon Mcmullen as a suspect and took him into custody at the residence where the shooting reportedly occurred.
According to the deposition, Mcmullen admitted to firing the shots, but said he "was not aiming at the victim and was only trying to scare her."
Intentions aside, Mcmullen was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, a Class C felony.
He was booked in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where he remained Tuesday afternoon with a bond set at $5,000.
